Various studies have indicated that a communication breakdown is the first casualty during critical incidents. Furthermore, 71% of schools in America report having at least one violent incident during the school year. This translates to an estimated 962,300 violent incidents that occurred in U.S. public schools nationwide, according to the most recent School Survey on Crime and Safety administered by the U.S. Department of Education. The key to mitigating the effects of these incidents is enhancing communication. School administrations can vastly improve communications and transparency by using school-issued Smartphones or Rugged Phones. Though Smartphones are the industry standard for school devices for administrators, Rugged phones combine extreme durability with all the features of a smartphone.
Safety is at the top of every administration’s list of concerns. So, protect your students, staff, and administrators with district-issued devices for all school-related communication. This will ensure that every member of your staff has the right communications tool at their disposal when communicating is at its most critical.
According to Pew Research, over 85% of Americans that own a mobile phone own a smartphone.
Smartphones are quickly becoming the industry standard for district-issued devices for school administrators. The typical smartphone incorporates the functionality of a computer in addition to its ability to provide messaging and calling capabilities. School districts are increasingly issuing smartphones to their staff, students, and administrators due to their enhanced functionality.
Staff members that do their most important work in unforgiving environments prefer a device that is equal to the task. Our first responders, maintenance staff, and school bus drivers require a device that can withstand whatever their job entails. A rugged phone can be that solution since it combines many of the same benefits as a smartphone with enhanced protection to safeguard your investment.
Federal and state grants are a vital part of the budget picture for nearly all public sector agencies in America. However, many of these agencies are understaffed or lack the expertise to properly assess, apply, and obtain critical grant funding. Understanding grant development or experience with grant programs can significantly increase their ability to leverage technology to advance their missions and enhance their impact on their communities.
The Premier Wireless Grants Support Program provides public sector agencies, educational institutions, and hospitals with grants information, customized funding research, and consultation that will help develop project ideas, get technology-rich projects funded, and even expand initiatives that are already in the works.
