With active shooter events becoming more common, it’s critical for school administrators and parents to do everything possible to proactively enhance the effectiveness of safety & security protocols in and around schools.
To help, Convergint has partnered with Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS) to make available a comprehensive school safety checklist. This document is a security audit document from PASS, which lays out a list of standards, developed by a coalition of law enforcement, security professionals, architects, and school administrators, that defines threats common to schools at each educational level, including:
Offering recommendations on parental and community involvement
Detailing a layered security approach that combats common threats and mitigates risks related to active shooters
Providing information for integrators, school administrators, resource officers, and IT staff on technology-focused solutions like video surveillance, duress alarms, and electronic access control
Delivering scalable and tiered measures that administrators can implement based on available resources and local risk levels
Convergint will continue to provide additional resources to conduct a safety audit, to budget for safety enhancements, and to train school personnel.
