Safety, Schools and Preparation


Most schools tell us safety is their #1 issue. Never has there been a more important concern in all schools than keeping kids safe. When we visit with safety officers and administrators it seems a large part of their plans involve using local law enforcement to assist. Dialing 9-1-1 is the standard.

The challenge for each of these organizations is that during a crisis that affects many buildings––like severe weather or a chemical spill––local emergency teams are greatly strained. Openly discussing these types of incidents with staff should be part of a total Emergency Response Plan (ERP). Doing so creates a greater awareness of the critical importance of having a safety action plan that is accessible, up-to-date, coordinated and responsive.

Wow! iPads are everywhere!


Apple has sold millions of iPads into K12 Education. And the iOS is the dominant tablet operating system in K12. Most implementations involve multiple iPads for particular classes, grade-levels, or in some cases–––school-wide programs.
