Frequently Asked Questions About Education Security
Implementing access control in a school means securing the entire perimeter of the school's campus, including each point of entry. Effective access control systems will ensure that students, faculty, and visitors will know where to enter the campus, how to enter the campus, and how to exit the campus.
With today's evolving security and safety threats, schools need trusted security systems to keep students and staff safe. Access control systems can make schools safer, so students can focus on learning.
In order to ensure campus security and safety, schools are encouraged to implement a comprehensive security management solution, which includes access control, video management, intercoms and door locks.
School security can be improved in many different ways. In the short term, it is recommended that schools clean up security systems, have a safety procedure in place and keep doors locked during the school day. In the long term, school security improvements include implementing remote door locks, incorporating live video surveillance, and putting a lockdown system into place.
In terms of physical security, there are several risks that schools face, including unauthorized individuals gaining access to school buildings, staff and student confusion on safety procedures, students feeling unprotected, and a lack of a secure learning environment.
