Unfortuntely, schools have to focus more and more attention on the safety and security of their students and staff. Here is a great case study of how a school district in Illinois has continued to improve the safety in their schools using technology and systems like BluePoint's. Employing a Rapid Emergency Response System (RERS) helps not only improve response times but also alleviates the pressure and stress on the leaders in a school that are charged with responding to an emergency. With a simple press of a button they can get police responding to the site and everyone in the building taking precautions. Sycamore School District also liked the fact that the BluePoint system did not change their protocols or security plans. There was no additional training needed just awareness of when to use the system.
