SANTA FE, Texas (1080 KRLD / AP) - The Santa Fe Independent School District is considering new security measures at Santa Fe High School following the mass shooting that killed 10 people.

The Houston Chronicle reports some parents voiced their security concerns at a school board meeting this week.

District officials discussed using reserve funds to add safety upgrades before students return this fall.

Proposed ideas include securing the perimeter with fencing, adding security doors and modifying a hallway.

Two art rooms where the shooting began may also be converted into storage or office space so students don't have to re-enter the area.
