PINCKNEY, Mich. (AP) — The Pinckney Community Schools district is moving forward with a plan to mount cameras inside 10 of its school buses.

The purchase of the camera kits was recently approved by the Pinckney Board of Education. Superintendent Rick Todd says the kits cost a little more than $21,000. He tells the Livingston Daily Press & Argus (http://bit.ly/1yQMhg0 ) that it's a good time to invest in the technology because the price of cameras has dropped dramatically over the past decade.

Each kit includes four little cameras that will be placed in different spots throughout the bus. Todd says the cameras will record situations that may occur on the bus and improve safety for students.

The cameras are expected to arrive within the next couple weeks.
