Best Practices on Advocating for Effective School Safety

Contemporary realities and new challenges put School Safety at the center of attention for parents, teachers, administrators, and the public every day. Students deserve environments in which they can learn and grow without worry. Parents deserve peace of mind that their children are protected in schools. Teachers and administrators, among all of their other responsibilities at schools, deserve assistance in keeping their students and facilities safe. 911inform, a single-pane-of-glass notification and security management platform, is the only solution that assists and enhances communication between local authorities and schools, saving valuable seconds in an emergency.

911inform is a browser-based system that integrates between schools and emergency dispatchers. It allows dispatchers to pinpoint the location of an emergency call’s origin while simultaneously notifying local authorities and allows them to access detailed real-time dynamic maps and visuals of a school’s premises. 911inform also notifies key on site personnel, allowing them to react to the emergency immediately. Additionally, responders and personnel gain control of all building security systems to manage response strategies.

Follow the steps below to advocate for the integration of 911inform in your school district.

Step 1

Find contact information for your school’s Board of Education and administrators

Step 2

Determine if your school district has a safety and security committee

Step 3

Step 4

Utilize 911inform’s Sample Letter to Administrators
