Several new technology trends are taking hold in the K-12 space as administrators and facility managers across the country seek out new ways to better secure their schools and protect their students. In turn, integrators are being asked to present the most robust and forward-thinking technologies available to meet these demands.

However, while some technologies can be shared across all schools, several solutions are specific to the type of building, location and use of a campus. To help security professionals consider cutting-edge solutions for the campuses they serve, here are a few “challenge and solution” scenarios that have become more common over the past few years in terms of K-12 security solutions.

This topic remains front and center, and our experts will explain options available from universal locking solutions and lockdown procedures to how public/private partnerships can help school districts get a leg up on the school security strategies. Some of the topics to be discussed include:

  • What are the hot new security technologies
  • How are advanced technologies like gunshot and weapons detection being integrated into school systems
  • Is there funding for school districts to implement security technology
  • What are the basics all school systems must be employing to keep their students and staff secure
