Charlottesville High school is getting a little help to keep an eye on students. The school's new security cameras were delivered today. About 30 cameras will be installed throughout the school and outside.

School administrators plan to monitor the video from their computers.
They're hoping it will cut down on some of the hallway pranks and fights.

"It's another tool that we can use to make sure our building is safe and secure, we were a little behind in that regard and now we're up to speed with it," said Kenneth Leatherwood, principal of Charlottesville High School.

Albemarle and Fluvanna County high schools already have cameras. Charlottesville's cameras will be in place by the upcoming school year.
