COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) -- Coeur d'Alene public schools officials have installed new security features on buildings and buses to keep students safe.
 
Another news source reported the buildings have a buzzer, intercom and security camera at main entrances to control access.
 
Officials say they hope to have the system in place at all the schools in the district by the end of February.
 
Ramsey Magnet School, Woodland Middle School and Coeur d'Alene High School are trying out the new system for three weeks.
 
The district's 66 school buses will each have three video cameras recording whenever students are being transported.
 
Officials say the cameras could cut down on bullying and behavior by students that might distract the driver.
