School Safety in the Spotlight
Increasing safety is a hot topic when discussing school budgets.
Grand Rapids, MI (I-Newswire) December 20, 2013 - Parents are endlessly concerned with a child's safety, especially while under someone else's supervision. Reasonably, the focus of many parents and school administrators, especially in the past year, has shifted to beefing up security in school districts nationwide.
Despite recent economic and government financial struggles parents, school staff and communities have been pushing for stronger security measures in schools. Not only has more attention been paid to this, in many school districts more funds are being allocated to this very important cause. As part of the overall academic mission, an increase in funding dedicated to school safety allows schools to maintain a peaceful and beneficial environment for their students.
According to ReminderNews in Connecticut, the state has released grant monies totaling $21 million to the state's school district to ramp up security. A total of 604 schools in Connecticut will benefit from these funds. Many other states are following this same course and requesting more money be allocated to the prevention of violence and tragedies by increasing school security measures.
Security enhancements schools are looking to make or have already made include bullet-proof glass, security cameras, computer-controlled locks, buzzers and entry alarm systems, panic alarms, visitor management and photo ID badges used for identification and door access.
Not only is keeping students safe about their physical well-being, it's also very important to their learning - how safe students feel directly and significantly impacts their ability to learn.
One effective way to improve school safety is to implement an ID badge policy. IDville features many simple, one-box ID card printer systems which include everything needed to get started printing photo ID badges within 15 minutes.
Another great safety element IDville offers is visitor management . With solutions ranging from visitor badges to Visitor Express: School Edition®, there are secure visitor options for any school's needs.
