Who We Are

Protecting Our Students, Inc. is a School Gun Safety Partner Coalition

Our goal is to decrease and ultimately eliminate active shootings in K-12 schools. Achieving this objective requires effort, but we are committed to implementing SITE|SAFETYNET℠, our mobile app for conducting “Risk Assessments and Annual Reassessments” in schools nationwide. It is not the only answer by any means, but rather, one innovation allowing schools to increase their security posture without creating a prison-like experience. New technology, including weapons detection, access control, video management systems, and social media monitoring, are essential tools but are not foolproof. Safety and Vulnerability Assessment and Annual Reassessment Technology are critical components of a school safety plan.


We Build partnerships with educational institutions and public and private consultants, including Certified School Safety Professionals, School Security & Crises Preparedness Specialists, Law Enforcement, and Government Agencies to apply our proprietary comprehensive evaluation process. Once each school is assessed, a network of certified security professionals can implement standardized emergency operating plans (EOP). The result? Schools nationwide become unified under a universal gun safety best practice EOP. And, because of our extensive network, these special safety measures can be applied to any school — no matter their funding or size.

The Problem

Gun safety in our K-12 schools has been disorganized, decentralized, and inefficient and consists of various methods and approaches, ranging from adequate to ineffective. There is no accepted universal process for auditing a school facility for security vulnerability and no universal certification program.

The Solution

We created a software APP, SITE|SAFETYNET℠, an advanced digital-age technological school safety and vulnerability assessment tool that gives schools the means and resources they need to protect their students and create a safe learning environment. Prevention of active shooters and gun violence on campus is our focus.

This allows for proactive measures to be taken to keep our students safe, such as detecting outdated or unrecognized security protocols and providing reports for improving safety for staff and students in the event of an active shooter.

Protecting Our Students, Inc. is Investing in Our Children’s Safety, Security, and Well-Being.

Our top priority is the safety and security of our students. A passion for good works drives us with resolve and integrity; we support institutional improvements that encourage better student health and education. With a core belief that a comprehensive examination of current school shooting safety and security policies and further implementation of a nationwide universal APP will substantially save student lives.
