Status Solutions affirms its continued support for Safe and Sounds Schools to increase public awareness of safety and security in schools.
New York, New York – February 10, 2020 – Status Solutions, the pioneering provider of enterprise situational awareness technologies, announced that the company will renew its partnership with national school safety nonprofit, Safe and Sound Schools. Since 2016, Status Solutions has partnered with the nonprofit to advance Safe and Sounds Schools’ mission to protect school communities through crisis prevention, response, and recovery.
“This partnership is a testament to Status Solutions’ longstanding commitment and service to school safety,” said Michele Gay, co-founder of Safe and Sound Schools. “Their support ensures that we reach more schools than ever with our message and no cost resources, ensuring that children, educators and communities across the country can foster and maintain safe and positive learning environments for all.”
With Status Solutions’ support, Safe and Sound Schools will expand its contributions to the national conversation around school safety. Together, the two school safety leaders plan to connect with legislators, assisting with the development of laws and regulations that impact schools across the country. The partnership will allow Safe and Sound Schools to enhance special programs and initiatives focused on school safety, as well as ongoing research and training conducted by the Safe and Sound Institute.
Status Solutions has been dedicated to school safety since its inception in 2001. After observing schools across the country struggle with strained resources, growing needs and wide-ranging threats, founder, Mike MacLeod knew schools shouldn’t be solely responsible for safety, technology and financial support. He aimed to find a solution that would lessen the burden on all schools, regardless of their financial standing, and strenghten their whole community. This led to the creation of the School Solutions Network.
School Solutions Network is an initiative that grants schools the right to use Status Solutions’ core situational awareness engine, SARA. This technology helps schools improve their safety and communication by providing staff with the ability to summon help from any browser and to send and receive quick messages. Status Solutions’ technology is customized to meet each schools’ unique needs and to better connect them not only internally, but with local law enforcement and the larger community.
Safe and Sound Schools provides a trusted platform to expand the reach in educating communities about the many Status Solutions services and technologies that help make our society safer.
