20 simple strategies to improve school security

Remember that there are many more student and teacher victimizations that take place in schools than shootings, along with fires, and non-firearm or explosive related crimes. Doors must allow ANYONE, even handicapped individuals , to be able to escape a building easily. Life Safety Code 101 and NFPA 80 specifically address public building egress and cannot be ignored by school administration and teachers.

 

Administrators need to also work on THREAT ASSESSMENTS OF STUDENTS.

"SCHOOL SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS - BEST PRACTICES FOR SETUP Cameras mounted near main entrances and in administrative offices can help you record each visitor as they enter and exit your school. Cameras near exits can also help reduce truancy. Fixed cameras can be strategically placed in order to protect valuables like computers, sound equipment, trophies and books.Outdoor surveillance cameras in parking lots can help protect older students and staff when leaving school late or arriving early. These cameras can also discourage break-ins and vandalism during school hours."
