NEW FIRST OF ITS KIND NATIONAL PROGRAM TO HELP U.S. SCHOOLS WITH SCHOOL SAFETY PROBLEMS ANNOUNCED

A new national coalition of School Safety experts announced today the development of a “Super School Security Audit” program.

The program brings together a comprehensive auditing of emergency readiness, physical security [cameras, web based security, etc.] and climate assessment [classroom management, leadership evaluations, special education] by experienced law enforcement and education professionals.
“This is the first time that law enforcement and school administers have come together to create a comprehensive auditing process for School Safety, Emergency Response and Education Management”, states SERAPH CEO Dale Yeager.
The new process will allow schools officials to have an audit performed of their policies, training, management systems and security hardware to evaluate whether these systems are preventing safety and security issues.
“Many school districts’ do not have a formal process to accurately assess from a security perspective what is happening behind the scenes of their schools”, says Yeager. “This new process will provide them with accurate information and more importantly solutions to specific safety issues.
The new audit process also provides important documentation for schools to apply for Federal monies.
Yeager says, “The U.S. Department of Education requires climate assessments of Special Education departments and comprehensive assessment of security and safety issues. “Without this examination of their districts they will lose much needed Federal grant money.
