Security Upgrades
Safe & Secure EntryIllustration of a more secure entrance for schools.

Number OneA secure zone guides visitors into the main office. 

Number TwoVisitors check in with school staff.

Number ThreeSchool office staff unlock inner doors to allow approved visitors into the school.

Better control of who gets in our schools and when they can enter makes students safer. The bond approved on Feb. 9, 2016 will fund security upgrades at all schools including:

  • Remodeled entryways to control visitor entry

  • Electronic entry to better control access

  • New monitoring systems

Why They're Needed

We want to better control who has access to our schools. Construction of new entryways would guide visitors to check in with school staff before they can enter the school. Electronic entry systems would secure keys and allow staff to lock doors remotely. 


We are improving security at all of our schools


We've completed secure entryways as part of broader construction work at:

  • Silverdale Elementary
  • Barker Creek Community School
  • Klahowya Secondary School
  • Olympic High School.

We also recently improved security at Silver Ridge Elementary, Ridgetop Middle School and Emerald Heights Elementary.  

Under Construction

Major construction at Central Kitsap High and Central Kitsap Middle include secure entrances. Construction of secure entrances is also underway at:

  • Brownsville
  • Clear Creek
  • Esquire Hills
  • Fairview Middle
  • Green Mountain
  • Hawk Elementary
  • PineCrest
  • Woodlands

Spring 2019

We've recently requested bids for work at Cottonwood and Cougar Valley elementary schools. Work is anticipated to begin this spring.
