Brazosport ISD to Use Thermal Cameras as Added Safety Protocol
Posted on 08/20/2020
This is the image for the news article titled Brazosport ISD to Use Thermal Cameras as Added Safety ProtocolAs another added layer to ensure the safety and security of our students and staff on campus during the ongoing battle with Covid-19, Brazosport ISD will utilize Hikvision Thermal Temperature cameras for both temperature and face mask checks this school year. 

These cameras are used to conduct temperature spot checks of students, visitors, and staff. Students walk in the hallway in a regular fashion, and the camera picks up the skin temperature of up to 30 individuals at one time. The laptop monitor, which is manned by district personnel, displays the students or staff with a temperature reading above their image. There is a secondary color coded visual image (green, yellow, red) of the staff, student and/or visitor. Green means the person meets all requirements to enter the building. Yellow means the person has failed to put on a mask as required by the Governor's order. Red means the person  is above the selected temperature requirements for entry to the building. 

There is no disruption to the flow of students, which keeps everyone separated for temperature checks. In the event that any student, visitor or staff exceeds the threshold of 99.7F (37.6C), they will be evaluated by the campus nurse.   

Safety and Security Coordinator, Ty Morrow, spearheaded this endeavor to ensure that staff and students not only have their temperature checked routinely, but the cameras provide awareness of the importance of self screening daily. He stated, “We want to make every effort to keep our schools open and safe, and I commend our school board and superintendent for always keeping staff and student safety a top priority.”
