Technical Safeguards

An important method of securing our schools is through an instant alert system, which will immediately notify all staff and local law enforcement officials of a crisis. Combining physical barricades, technological advances, and ongoing lockdown drills with all staff and students, the baseline security level of our  schools will increase substantially.
