Today’s school safety and security challenges are multi-faceted and complex. There is no single action that will, by itself, make our schools safe. Protecting students and staff is a tremendous moral and legal responsibility that requires a comprehensive approach to these challenges.
Security management is a core responsibility of school administrators, who face daily pressure to ensure that students and staff are protected, often without significant security expertise or the benefit of full-time safety/security staff. When it comes to security, school administrators are faced with two difficult questions:
- What do we do?
- How do we prioritize?
The Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS) is a not for profit coalition of organizations and individuals from the education, public safety and industry communities, brought together to develop and support best practice recommendations for school safety and security across multiple disciplines. This alliance has created the PASS Guidelines and Checklist that were developed to provide administrators with the means to effectively evaluate safety and security infrastructure already in place, prioritize investments and maximize safety and security gained by leveraging available resources. The Guidelines and Checklist identify and classify best practices for securing k12 facilities in response to the urgent needs identified by the educational community.
This session will focus on creating a deeper understanding of:
- the Safety and Security Challenges Facing our K12 Schools
- the Concept of Layered & Tiered Safety & Security
- Layers and Components and Recommended Best Practices Within the Layers
- how the PASS Guidelines and Checklist/Assessment Tools can be utilized by schools to implement and enhance the Safety and Security of their facilities
This webinar will be presented by Mark C. Williams, the Vice Chairman PASS.
