New School Security Construction Cost Estimates Reference PASS K-12 Guidelines

pass-logoThe Partner Alliance for Safer Schools K-12 (PASS K-12) – an initiative developed by the National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA) and the Security Industry Association (SIA) – is excited to announce that its guidelines have been used by the Secure Schools Alliance Research and Education (the Alliance) organization to create the first-ever school security construction cost estimates.

“While a few states – like New Jersey and Connecticut – have passed rules regarding security improvements for K-12 schools, there are still no approved national standards for such security infrastructure improvements,” says Robert Boyd, executive director of the Secure Schools Alliance. “The PASS guidelines represent an opportunity for the United States to embrace a consistent set of goals for security infrastructure, security technology, and life safety systems for public schools while respecting local norms and not forcing unfunded mandates.”
