Convergint’s STEP Up initiative was launched this year with the goal of increasing security in K-12 schools, especially within underserved local communities. This included installing and updating security systems in eight schools across the country, as well as providing a security checklist, available online to everyone, that lists out all of the important elements to consider for school safety checks during the summer. One of the communities to which Convergint donated system upgrades was Atlanta, where Convergint colleagues volunteered at three local schools. Atlanta Public Schools featured one of the projects in a recent video, which is available below.
About STEP Up
Enhancing school security can provide a vital level of protection for students, faculty, and visitors. In that spirit, Convergint created its STEP Up initiative to help strengthen security in our schools. This program was launched during Convergint’s annual Social Responsibility Day. Convergint colleagues went out into their local communities and provided underserved schools with interior and exterior security systems installations, security upgrades, and security assessments.
