Creating a Safer School in Today’s Environment

01/25/2024 1:00 pm

Creating a safer school environment is a top priority in today’s world. To achieve this, schools can implement a comprehensive visitor management system using Kokomo24/7's system that streamlines the sign-in and out process and verifies guardianship during student sign-outs.

Anonymous reporting can be used to report suspicious activity without fear of retaliation. This system allows students to report anonymously and provides a way for administrators to track and manage reported incidents.

The Kokomo24/7 case management system can be used to track and manage reported incidents. It provides a centralized platform for reporting, tracking, and managing incidents, as well as a way to communicate with students, staff, and parents.

By implementing these measures, schools can create a safer environment for students, staff, and visitors.
