K-12 School Safety and Security Software
K-12 School Safety and Security Software is complex, in that school systems need a single system to provide campus safety and security however that system has to provide security for an elementary school, a middle school, and a high school.
In the K-5/elementary environment the campus safety and security is done primarily on behalf of the student, communication is primarily with the parent and create a strong sense of supervision, control and custody exchange.
Middle school, just like the name needs to be somewhere in the middle, having pieces that allow the students if they have smart devices to be engaged and help secure and protect them and on the other hand have process and tools that both do things on their behalf, communicate with parents, and create a strong sense of supervision, control and custody exchange.
In high school campus safety and security systems succeed by engaging and communicating with the student, parents still are in the communication loop, but less so, student supervision and custody are still factors, but considerations have to be made to accommodate a more flexible and student enabled model.
A K-12 school campus safety and security software has to support the following:
- Ability to configure each school with modules, rules, processes, tools and procedures that are specific to the unique school.
- Ability of one school campus security system that can support the needs of elementary, middle and high schools.
- Ability to configure many school-wide policies and procedures that apply for all schools.
- Ability to monitor and manage safety and security from a central security operation center.
- Provide strong monitoring and management tools at the school level so the school can control, monitor, communicate and respond.
- Provide distributed tools for faculty, staff, students, parents, and school resource officers.
- Ability to support parents who may have a student in elementary, middle, high school, or all of them.
K-12 School Systems shootings, mental health issues, allergies, medical conditions, illicit drug use on and off campus, and natural and main made disasters, all are concerns associated with K-12 School Systems safety and security.
Safety is a major concern for everyone who steps foot on school campus. Turn on the news on any given day and you’ll quickly discover negative stories highlighting dangers found on K-12 School Systems campuses across the nation.
Students are experimenting with drugs, hormones are raging, tempers are flaring, and it’s up to everyone to ensure dangers are anticipated, reported, and dealt with in a timely manner.
School leaders are challenged by adolescents who lack good decision making, are unable to comprehend the consequences of their actions, and often times to not exercise good self-control. It comes down to a lack of connection between the frontal cortex and the limbic area.
K-12 School Safety and Security Software are the responsibility of school leaders
K-12 School Systems leaders and security resources are ultimately responsible for the safety, security and issues that occur on their campuses.
The issues are obvious:
- Saves Lives
- Reduce Injuries
- Protect the reputation of the school

Now that the Scot Peterson, security resource officer at Marjory Stoneman Douglas Charter School in Parkland Florida is being criminally charged with child neglect and other charges, legitimate concerns from school leaders and resource officers about criminal charges loom. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/04/us/parkland-scot-peterson.html
K-12 School System leaders and security professional need to:
- Document policies and procedures.
- Demonstrate daily in real-time that the campus safety and security tools, systems, resources, people and processes are in place to secure their campus.
- As school’s demonstrate response, the response has to be well documented so that schools can prove, improve and anticipate response.
- Consider all the risks that exist in a campus and take actions with the appropriate, people, processes and tools to safe guard the school.
- Engage students into safety and security processes that are integrated in a compelling way into the lives of students.
