Education K–12

Score High Marks for Schoolwide Safety

Educational institutions, from K-12 through college, are being increasingly challenged to find smarter ways to boost student safety and staff efficiency with ever-shrinking budgets. Parents want to be confident their children are learning in a safe, secure environment. School personnel need to effectively interact together, whether they’re managing sporting events or a maintenance emergency. And administrators must ensure a rapid, coordinated response to any situation with up-to-date technology that fits their funding.

THE CHALLENGE

How can you keep students safer in the classroom, on the school bus and at after-school events? Unify your staff easily and seamlessly, working around the district or across campus? Make sure parents are in touch and your community in the loop?

Institutions are seeking smarter solutions, such as GPS location tracking to monitor buses, manage routes and enable parents to log in and see where students are. They’re looking for safer solutions for their staff, too – from emergency alarms that activate voice communication to hands-free accessories so drivers can communicate safely while operating the bus.

Other solutions might be a Cellular Amplification System that increases cellular connectivity for students and staff. In some cases a Public Safety Emergency Responder System and Cellular System are combined together.

EXPERIENCE A NEW CLASS OF COMMUNICATION AND COORDINATION

If a district needs to reroute buses around a major accident, they can send drivers the directions with text messaging. For increased safety, using a wireless Bluetooth® RFID scanner, school administrators can efficiently identify and track students boarding buses for a field trip by scanning the barcode on their IDs. And should a disturbance on campus occur, administrators can activate an emergency call feature to instantly alert staff and security.
