Creating a safe and secure campus for K-12 schools that promotes the well-being and
academic success of students is a paramount concern for educators, administrators, parents and communities alike. In today’s ever-changing world, threats can emerge from numerous scenarios within these sensitive and complex environments. Whether a lost child, medical incident, fight among students, social media threat, an intruder or, in the worst-case scenario, active shooter on campus, a comprehensive safety and security strategy is priority No. 1 for K-12 schools.
The direct impact of a comprehensive approach to safety and security begins before and long after the bell rings with morning drop off, passing between classes, afternoon pickup, and various after-school activities and events. Among the many components of such strategies, virtual monitoring has emerged as an indispensable tool.
