Creating Safety Standards for K-12

School security is at the forefront of conversations around dinner tables, in administrator conferences, and at school board meetings.

As SIA and NSCA received questions from the educational community about what can be done to better secure our schools – and how these security projects can be funded – it became quickly evident that there were no easy answers. School budgets are tight, and funding is difficult to pull together for potential security threats that, statistically, have a very low probability of occurring.

The PASS story is one born out of concern and commitment for school safety. When a school system makes an investment in security, we want to help them make sure their money spent on the right solutions. The PASS guidelines:

  1. Define threats common to schools at each educational level
  2. Offer recommendations on parental and community involvement
  3. Detail a layered security approach that combats common threats and mitigates risks related to active shooters
  4. Provide information for integrators, school administrators, resource officers, and IT staff on technology-focused solutions like video surveillance, duress alarms, and electronic access control
  5. Deliver scalable/tiered measures that administrators can implement based on available resources and local risk levels
