To protect a school requires knowledge and skills that typically licensed and classfied staff do not have. As a school board member a question that should be asked of a superintendant or principalis: "What formal training in their college carear and experience do you have that related to security and emergency planning?" Most have learned on the job.
The security field has only in the past twenty years become an academic area of study and degree. It is a professional field and a multibillion dollar industry on equal with the education profession. The tasks that face a school leader to protect the students and facilities is emense. In our experience many school leaders simply do not have the knowledge, skills and time to cover all the areas.
As consultants we get on the ground at your school and take the burden off your superintendant or principal and get the job completed. You can make it a long term relationship that periodically we come in and update your planning and drills or you may decide to have a one time consultation to try the concept out.
Since we are engauged in actively communicating with state departments of education, Federal agencies and attending professional development conferences we will provide current information and practices that would be difficult for the superintendant or principal to obtain with everything else that must be done.
Supporting agencies for schools are facing cut backs and have less staff to get out on the ground with your school. A specialized school security consultant may be the only way for your organization to get the help it needs.
We are conducting training and consulting with many schools. Your board and school will gain from the experience and mistakes from dozens of other institutions and dozens of other industries. Security is a science that we understand.
For the school board this is a valuable double check to be certain that the safety of the school is certain.
