Students in gate dispute will get swipe cards

Posted: Updated:
BROOKSVILLE (FOX 13) -

A dispute between the Hernando County School District and a gated community near three of its schools has been resolved.

At issue was a gate between the Brookridge subdivision, a gated community; and three schools just on the other side of a gate at the north end of the neighborhood.

About two weeks ago, families with children who live in the subdivision were told the gate would be permanently locked over security concerns.

That meant kids would have to walk out of the main, south gate of the neighborhood, and circle back around to north, walking along busy roads with few sidewalks.

Now, the school district has agreed to install a gate that students can open with a swipe card, according to Barry Crowley, head of security for the Hernando County School Board.

Crowley said it would take about three weeks to get the equipment in place.
