AN INITIATIVE FOR SCHOOL SECURITY
The safety of our country’s children when heading off to school each morning is of deep concern to our colleagues at Convergint. Enhancing school security can provide a vital level of protection for students, faculty, and visitors. In that spirit, we have created our STEP Up initiative to help strengthen security in our schools.
Schools can download our school safety checklist, available below. We urge schools and parents to do all they can to assure that their buildings are as secure as possible. In the coming months, we will provide additional resources to conduct a safety audit, to budget for safety enhancements, and to train school personnel.
We launched this program on June 8, 2018 by going out into our local communities and providing 8 underserved schools with interior and exterior security systems installations, security upgrades, and security assessments. We will continue to work with local schools to provide further assistance and resources for underserved schools in need of them.
As always, we strive to be our customers’ best service provider and to give back to our communities. We plan to continue that mission with the STEP Up program.

WHAT EVERY SCHOOL

The end of the school year gives school administrators the opportunity to conduct a school safety check on the physical systems in and around the facility. Schools can now download our school safety checklist to go over some basic things they can do over the summer to strengthen security at their facility.
