Protecting Our Students collaborates with local school districts across the nation by speaking directly with Superintendents, District Managers, and School Safety Coordinators. We measure schools for gun safety strengths and weaknesses.
Protecting Our Students is a coalition of concerned citizens: parents, teachers, students, communities, and security consultant experts. Joined together to problem solve, share best practices, and to take specific and measurable actions, we exist to create a unified, safe environment for our children.
We unite schools to protect our students. K-12 school gun safety policies and procedures are not uniform. Some cities and states implement different safety systems, and POS standardizes and unifies a best-of-class policy nationwide. We are developing partnerships with Certified School Safety Professionals, School Security & Crisis Preparedness Specialist, Law Enforcement, and Government Agencies. With POSSafetyNet℠, our standardized K-12 universal gun safety policy and procedure app, we measure strengths and deficiencies among school districts across the nation to identify any needed safety modifications and policy reform upgrades.
POSSafetyNet℠ is building a coalition of partners. We provide a comprehensive, one-stop certification process that standardizes best practices for all schools regardless of their size and funding by merging gun safety and security policies in K-12 schools nationwide.
Today’s students feel stress and anxious about more than tests. They’re worried about their safety. By providing this critical peace of mind for students, teachers, parents, and school administrators across the country, together, we make a difference.
We spur the country back into concrete, measurable, substantive action in considerably decreasing the frequency and enormity of mass shooting episodes in our k-12 schools. In nearly every case over ten years, attackers who targeted schools had engaged in threatening or other suspicious behavior that caused people to raise concerns beforehand.
Over 93,000 teachers and faculty have the opportunity to assess behavior exhibited by troubled students. POS measures the vulnerability of schools and applies an effective state-of-the-art security solution for implementing a unified security approach in an objective, consistent, cost-effective manner.
Protecting Our Students is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization explicitly designed to standardize and unify K-12 gun safety policies with our proprietary POSSafetyNet℠ program designed specifically for our students. We accomplish this with donations and support – for the nearly 100,000 K-12 schools that are struggling with the cost of upgrading and improving today’s gun safety and security needs.
When asked how safe they feel at various locations around their school, just over half of students report feeling safe from harm at school. While 66% of students feel safe in their classes, only 59% say they feel safe at school in general. POSSafetyNet℠
