A string of break-ins and vandalism cases at local schools has Chico Unified School District officials rethinking campus security measures.
Tomorrow night, district board members will hear a plan to beef up security while classes are out.
In response to recent break-ins at Marigold Elementary, Pleasant Valley High School, and Sierra View Elementary School, the district has already hired a private security company to patrol campuses overnight at a cost of $2800 a month.
District staff is expected to report on the new security patrols, which are armed when school is not in session, as well as what to do in future months.
