The safety of our country’s children when heading off to school each morning is of deep concern to our colleagues at Convergint. Enhancing school security can provide a vital level of protection for students, faculty, and visitors. In that spirit, we have created our STEP Up initiative to help strengthen security in our schools.
As part of this program, Convergint has worked with 24 underserved schools to provide free interior and exterior security systems installations, security upgrades, and security assessments. We will continue to offer further assistance and resources for local schools in need.
Schools can also download our school safety checklist, available below. We urge schools and parents to do all they can to assure that their buildings are as secure as possible. Convergint has also provided additional resources to conduct a safety audit, to budget for safety enhancements, and to train school personnel.
As always, we strive to be our customers’ best service provider and to give back to our communities. We are carrying that mission forward with the STEP Up program.
