We know that schools from K-12 to higher education are looking for ways to meet a range of student needs, while funding continues to be reduced. Parents want to know they are sending their children to a safe and secure learning environment. Teachers, coaches, bus drivers and security personnel want to more effectively oversee assemblies, sporting events and other school activities, while maintenance staffs want to more efficiently manage day to day activities. Administrators want to ensure a rapid, coordinated response to any situation using technology that is within their budgets.

How can you keep students safer in the classroom, on the school bus and at after-school events? Unify your staff easily and seamlessly, working around the district or across campus? Make sure parents are in touch and your community in the loop? 

The answer is Team Communications solutions. T&W provides unified Team Communications that work reliably across any network, any device and any application. It keeps staff connected, students secure, and administrators, parents and the public confident. Schools are seeking smarter solutions, such as GPS location tracking to monitor buses, manage routes and enable parents to log in and see where students are. They’re looking for safer solutions for their staff, too – from emergency alarms that activate voice communication to hands-free accessories so drivers can communicate safely while operating the bus.

If a district needs to reroute buses around a major accident, they can send drivers the directions with text messaging. For increased safety, using a wireless Bluetooth® RFID scanner, school administrators can efficiently identify and track students boarding buses for a field trip by scanning the barcode on their IDs. And should a disturbance on campus occur, administration can activate an emergency call feature to instantly alert staff and security. Connect everyone seamlessly and easily with the MOTOTRBO™ expanded portfolio of digital two-way radios and accessories.

Increase security with next generation solutions like SchoolSAFE that bridges communications between the public safety network and schools. Once the SchoolSAFE public safety bridge is activated, school personnel use their MOTOTRBO radios to talk directly with 9-1-1 dispatchers and first responders heading to the scene. Instead of information passing through multiple parties or being incomplete, everyone is on the same channel and can exchange information as an incident unfolds.

“In an incident where seconds save lives, this direct communication has the potential to make a world of difference. Whether it is them giving us information we use to make tactical decisions during a critical event at the school or us advising them on a lockdown or shelter request when there is potential danger in their area, having this immediate notification means the students are safer, and so are the deputies.”
Sheriff Kirk Taylor, Pueblo County School District
