Education Solutions

Safe Schools

In K-12 institutions across the country, educators, school officials and parents are searching for comprehensive solutions to preserve student and staff safety. Tragic events such as school shootings – while still far too frequent – are relatively rare. However, K-12 schools also face everyday emergencies that require instant, coordinated responses from multiple teams, including local public safety officers. 

For those districts fortunate enough to receive increased funding for school safety improvements, choosing among the wide variety of different solutions available is a challenge. For districts without additional funding – but with increased scrutiny from parents and the community – applying their budget for maximum safety benefit is even more critical.
