The Montgomery County School Board wants to beef up security at elementary schools in the county.

Under a proposed plan, a video intercom system would be installed at the entrances of all 132 elementary campuses.

The school board voted unanimously Tuesday in favor of the idea. It now goes to the county council for approval. If it gets the green light, $364,000 would be released to pay for the camera system.

Montgomery County Council President Nancy Navarro said it’s likely the council will approve the request.

The county hopes to have the system installed by July 2013.

Montgomery County middle and high schools have guards on duty.
