ESA members are taking a leadership role nationwide in ensuring the safety of children, teachers and school personnel.
To assist in those efforts, ESA developed Electronic Security Guidelines for Schools.The guidelines were created through active participation from a selected panel of 18 security industry professionals with extensive experience in securing schools.
The document isn't designed primarily for industry professionals, but as a reference for school administrators when working to assess and determine appropriate security strategies.
The goal is to create a smarter customer – to help school officials and administrators make sense of all the information and best practices – and to make sure ESA members are up on the latest information in school security.
Relatively free of industry jargon, the document outlines a process and best practices – from a security audit to development of effective procedures during a school emergency – in terms that can be easily understood by anyone who knows more about schools than security.
The guidelines are neither a project specification nor a manual, and definitely not a sales pitch. They are meant to inform and advise decision makers about their options, and the critical role electronic security professionals can play in keeping our schools safe.
