School districts in three New York counties this year will spend a combined $20 million on security upgrades, according to a newspaper survey. The improvements -- planned in the wake of a tragedy last year at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. -- include installing cameras, bulletproof coatings to windows and computer systems that check visitors' backgrounds by swiping driver's licenses. Funds for the upgrades came from capital improvements budgets, new taxes approved by voters and grants.
