Convergint’s STEP Up initiative launched this year with the goal of strengthening K-12 school security, with a focus on underserved local communities. Convergint updated and installed 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. Convergint colleagues volunteered at Perez Elementary in Austin, TX and upgraded security systems and enhanced their landscaping which was featured by CBS, NBC, and ABC Austin in a recent newscast, 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.
