The Hart district officials want an unblinking set of eyes on campuses in case of vandalism, crime or natural disaster.

The board will decide which company will install the district's security cameras at Wednesday's meeting.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department will use the cameras to monitor the William S. Hart Union High School District campuses.

Michael Otavka, district director of facilities and new construction, recommends awarding the bid to Focus Micro Inc., which submitted the lowest bid of $196,000. Seven companies submitted bids for the project.

Fifty percent of the $196,000 will be covered by the district's Maintenance and Operations fund and 50 percent will be covered by the Secure Our Schools Grant.

The district received a $249,626 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice.

The balance between the cost of the bid and the grant funds will be used for operation and maintenance.

It is still undetermined how many cameras will be installed or where they will be located on each SCV campus.

If approved, this project will start in December and will be completed in about four months.
