Stories of schools implementing safe campus best practices
An Always-On Technology Infrastructure for Safe and Secure Schools
Providing an effective teaching and learning environment is the primary goal of all educational institutions. Traditionally, administrators concentrated on providing faculty with the tools to properly deliver the curriculum and structuring the learning process to sufficiently engage students. But, violent incidents over the past decade along with government regulations have put pressure on administrators to focus on the physical security and safety of staff, faculty, and students.
Schools, colleges, and universities must have emergency response plans that enable administrators, safety personnel, and first responders to work together seamlessly. They must also have solutions that enable awareness, response coordination, and campus-wide notifications.
ALE Safe Campus solutions leverage mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT) to evolve connectivity in the education sector and enable secure, reliable communication between faculty, students, and facilities. Schools will enhance existing investments to create an end-to-end, always-on communications infrastructure that supports mass communication during lockdown procedures, emergency preparedness, and integrates with building control systems, such as overhead paging, duress alarms, and cameras, for enhanced awareness and response.
In this ebook, educational institution leaders share their successful implementations of comprehensive technology infrastructure that prioritizes safety and security.
