Body scanners and clear book bags will be the new normal for students in Clayton County starting Wednesday, August 3rd. That's when the new school year starts.

Clayton County School Superintendent Dr. Morcease Beasley tells the Big Tigger Morning Show "We want to make sure that everyone is safe."

According to Beasley, body scanners will be used for grades 6-12 at certain school entrance points. He says the scanners are unobtrusive and security personnel will be able to identify if there are weapons.

Clayton County is the 5th largest school district in Georgia.
