HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) -- Right now workers are installing new LED signs in front of every school in the Huntsville City School District, a move that will allow officials to display emergency information with a few clicks of a button, district-wide.
District spokesman Keith Ward says the new signs will be connected and able to be controlled and updated from a central hub. Ward says this will allow district staff to post emergency weather and other information on every sign at one time.
"It is vital for us to be able to reach our students and community members on multiple platforms with important information, this is just another great way we will be able to use technology to accomplish this goal," Ward said.
While most businesses and private individuals like churches are barred from installing the large bright LED signs in certain sections of the city, the school district is exempt from this city sign ordinance.
