WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Wichita's schools will be getting an upgraded security system.

The Wichita School Board voted Monday night to approve a $3 million contract to improve the district's surveillance system and other security upgrades.

The board authorized the district to buy hardware, software, and services from Aventura Technologies. The company will also design and install a centralized surveillance system.

The district's current security system was installed nine years ago and uses analog cameras and dial-up modems. Superintendent John Allison says the system breaks down and is inefficient.

The proposed upgrades would include high-definition cameras, new computers, and a centralized dispatch center to watch over the district's nearly 100 schools.
