What to consider when developing a school safety and security plan:
It takes planning and expertise to develop a comprehensive school safety and security strategy. Typically these plans include risk assessments, multi-tiered implementation, and cooperation with local law enforcement.
A comprehensive strategy requires a multi-layered approach to detection, prevention, mitigation, response, and recovery. Advances in technology offer administrators the tools they need to keep schools safe so their teachers and students can focus on learning. Architectural elements, communications systems, and emergency response capabilities work together to mitigate security threats.
