Safety And Security

Your school cares deeply for your students’ safety. We help you develop the practical policies and protocols to help ensure safe environments and give you tools so that your staff is prepared when issues arise.

In addition, we can provide training and consulting for your staff so that all members of the community are focused on keeping children safe. ISS’s school management services include a network of experts who can immediately guide you through any situation, ranging from classic school-related issues, delicate stakeholder relations, and even more serious crisis management to ensure safety and security in schools.
