Studies have shown that communications breakdown is the number one failure during critical incidents. 71% of schools across the country report having at least one violent incident during the school year. Generally, these incidents result in employee phones being confiscated as part of the investigation. Districts can improve communications with school issued Smartphones or Rugged Phones. Smartphones are the industry standard for school devices for administrators. Rugged phones offer more durability with all the features of a smart phone.
Protect your district and your employees with district-issued devices for all school-related communication. More importantly, protect your students by ensuring that every member of your staff has the right device for critical communications.
According to Pew Research, over 81% of Americans that own a mobile phone own a smartphone.
Smartphones are quickly becoming the industry standard for district-issued devices for school administrators simply because they can provide access to necessary information and documentation in addition to calling and messaging features. Districts are increasingly issuing smartphones for teachers and other staff members for the same increased usability.
Facilities and maintenance staff, bus drivers and first responders often prefer a device that can withstand the harsh environments and active nature of their jobs. Rugged phones can offer many of the same benefits of smartphones with additional protection to safeguard your investment.
Federal and state grants are part of the budget picture for nearly every public sector agency in the country, but many agencies are understaffed for grants development or lack experience with grant programs that could dramatically increase their capacity to leverage technology to advance their missions and impact their communities.
The Premier Wireless Grants Support Program provides public sector agencies, educational institutions, and hospitals with grants information, customized funder research, and consultation that will help develop project ideas, get technology-rich projects funded, and even expand initiatives that are already in the works.
