October 3, 2018

Just like tracking packages ordered from Amazon, parents and schools alike, need to know that their children are safe when they’re moving in-and-around campus. And that's why student accountability should be a top priority for schools in 2018.The concept of student accountability involves managing and overseeing the flow of students throughout the day. It involves tracking attendance, signing students in and out from different locations, getting permissions for off-campus activities, monitoring pastoral and behavioural patterns and much more.When done effectively, schools can significantly enhance their security capabilities and demonstrate their duty of care, giving families a strong sense of security that their children are in safe hands.Our new 2018 State of Student Accountability Report, is based on survey responses from hundred's of school professionals around the world. It includes powerful new data about how they approach student accountability, the results of their efforts, as well as their challenges, opportunities and views on the future of school safety.Download the report here:2018 State of Student Accountability Report
