FORT WAYNE. Ind (WOWO) – Fort Wayne Community Schools plan to ask for support from voters on a safety and secruity referendum.

That could come as early as this fall, according to Superintendent Mark Daniel.

He said it is too early to quantify the additional property tax dollars FWCS will seek to collect over eight years through the measure, but Daniel stressed the vaule of investing in new safety measures.

Those include increasing the number of student resource officers and installing new devices that can alert officials to open doors.

So far this school year, nine weapons have been brought to FWCS grounds.

According to the Journal Gazett, guns were found at two high schools just last week.

Officials from the school say they hope their effots will become examples for other school districts, which could lead to improved teacher, staff and student retention.
