    Officials with Decatur Public Schools are beefing up security. The recent rash of school shootings has prompted administrators to add major security improvements into design plans for the high school's renovations.
    Contractors are adding surveillance cameras at each door and outside the school, as well as a phone in each classroom, for emergencies. Changes should be in place when construction is complete in August 2014.
