Education Minister Doctor Gale Rigobert says the authorities have tabled for discussion consideration and implementation, a programme that will address security issues in schools.
She was questioned bu reporters on the issue of school security outside parliament Tuesday.
Rigobert spoke against the backdrop of a break in Sunday at the Gros Islet Secondary school.
She recalled that a few weeks ago the first cohort of watchmen who were trained by the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force were outfitted with their batons and uniforms.
Recently, 25 watchmen took the oath of office as Special Police Constables, administered by Police Commissioner, Severin Moncherry.
Rigobert told reporters that a second cohort will be trained.
But she explained that other measures will be considered and implemented, including electronic security systems.
