Description

In this complimentary workshop, industry experts share insights regarding best practices school leaders lean upon to improve the communications and physical security of their communities. Our presenters detail the challenges a school faces when it comes to communications and safety. From managing daily and emergency communications to finding ways to properly monitor and process ingress, egress, visitors, and intruders, underlying technology systems make all the difference. This is especially true when dealing with emergency situations when every second is critical to finding a positive resolution. In addition to examining how technology solutions can enhance daily communication, our presenters will also explore situations where there have been significant breakdowns or failures in message delivery.  Case studies referencing tragedies like Uvalde, Sandy Hook, Parkland, and Covenant will be explored in detail to highlight what went wrong, why it went wrong,  and how best to prevent devastation from befalling your campus. Finally, presenters discuss both the physical security and communications solutions that can be employed in a strategic effort to streamline daily and urgent message delivery. Guest expert Adam Drew, School Resource Officer (SRO), law enforcement professional, and founder of Three Corners, a consulting firm focused on K–12 safety training and workshops in the New York and New Jersey area, and Eastern DataComm’s National School Safety Advisor Paul Jenne will share practical guidance and useful insights that will positively impact how you safeguard your school community and keep communication flowing efficiently and effectively when every moment counts. Adam and Paul will share the real-life value of reviewing your school’s processes, policies, and procedures related to daily communications as well as emergency events. You’ll walk away with a clear understanding of how these elements, working together with technological systems like video surveillance, access control, emergency notification, paging, bells, clocks, and phones, can create the most connected and safest school environment – one that our children, educators, and supporting staff deserve.

We’ll offer insight on the lessons learned from national school tragedies while applying those hard-won insights to the communications and physical security challenges schools like yours face each day. We’ll also tackle the essential process of reviewing and improving school emergency response policies, procedures, and technology solution approaches so that your school community stays safe and responds swiftly and effectively when every second counts. After participating in our educational workshop, attendees will be able to:
  • Recognize the common challenges schools face with day-to-day communications as well as during emergencies like lockdowns and active shooter incidents and what insight can be garnered from past tragedies.
  • Understand the role of video surveillance, access control, paging systems, telephone systems, and emergency notification systems as part of a robust school safety and communications ecosystem.

NOTE: Seating is limited. We encourage those interested in participating to register early to secure their spot. 

Agenda

  • 10:30 am to 11:00 am – Registration & Check-In
  • 11:00 am to 1:30 pm – Interactive Presentation with Audience Q&A, inclusive of live demonstrations of effective emergency notification, access control, and video surveillance technologies
  • 1:30 pm to 2:00 pm –  Table Discussions/Networking, Closing Remarks, & Adjournment

** Lunch will be served at no cost for all registered attendees.**

Purpose and Objectives

Our educational experience is a must for school officials seeking to learn the most effective ways to improve safety and communications for lockdowns and the overall physical security of their campuses. We’ll explore the challenges a school faces when dealing with a threat like an active shooter and why the basic requirements and recent legislation often fall short when creating a fully encompassing school safety ecosystem. We’ll then demonstrate effective solutions that meet those challenges while leveraging existing technologies like phone and PA systems. Finally, we’ll showcase additional tie-ins to video surveillance and access control systems to provide a complete, comprehensive safety and communication solution.

This workshop will share insights referencing key learnings from previous active shooter events that made headlines across the country and provide actionable solutions to help prevent such tragedies from happening again. We’ll conclude with a discussion featuring thought leaders in education and technology, along with an audience Q&A period. We encourage all who attend to come ready with questions they’d like to have answered during this time.

Learning Outcomes

The key to an effective emergency notification solution is its ability to interconnect with other communication technologies. Systems like phones, paging, bells, clocks, video surveillance, access control, and automated emergency notification should work together in unison as one overall safety and communications solution. When done right, communicating and responding to threats becomes much more effective. In addition, the overall solution will improve day-to-day communications, providing enormous value to the district. This workshop will give you the blueprint on how to do this properly for all the school buildings within your district.

After participating in our educational workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Speak to what challenges typically exist for schools when facing a lockdown or active shooter event.
  • Understand how a school can monitor all outside doors to ensure an active shooter cannot simply walk into a school, having access to all rooms and people present within.
  • Know what current legislation dictates for school safety and identify where there are gaps that can lead to opportunities of failure when executing school safety protocols.
  • Learn and apply the 3 principles that every technology needs to address to best work in conjunction with their Emergency Operations Plan (EOP).
  • Recognize what potential physical safety and emergency notification vulnerabilities may exist on their campus.
  • Understand how to leverage existing technology (or upgrade when needed) to create an improved school safety ecosystem that leads to a safer campus environment.
  • See the value in fully integrated safety solutions that encompass phone, paging, emergency notification, access control, and video surveillance.
  • Learn from the examples of other school systems who have successfully taken a holistic, comprehensive approach to school safety.

Intended Audience

  • K–12 Superintendents and Business Administrators
  • School Safety and Security Professionals
  • School District IT Professionals
  • Higher Education Administrators
  • Those entrusted with ensuring the safety of school district students, faculty, and staff within your district 

There is no fee associated with registering for this event. Parking will be at the expense of the attendee.
