Impero’s Board of Directors announce $2.5m School Online Safety Grant

08/30/2018

On September 28th, Impero’s Board of Directors announced a $2.5 million dollar ‘School Online Safety Grant’, designed to help U.S. education establishments respond to new safety initiatives – fuelled by changes in state laws and federal recommendations.

The School Online Safety Grant is designed to help schools and districts meet the new recommendations on assessing threat and defining behaviors outlined in the Enhancing School Safety Using a Threat Assessment Model and K-12 School Security safety guide from the Department of Homeland Security. While many establishments will be bolstering their closed-circuit video (CVV) and motion detectors or implementing turnstiles, door blockers and lock systems, it’s important not to neglect the digital side when it comes to your students’ online safety and security.

As schools and districts work to improve their safety and security programs, have you considered:

With stretched budgets combined with rising concerns over student safety, the need to identify potential risk – and intervene – sooner has never been so crucial.

Over the past decade, Impero has worked alongside schools, charities and specialist organizations such as Mental Health America (MHA), the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), and SafeBAE to develop keyword libraries covering a broad range of safeguarding and student welfare issues, from bullying, self-harm and suicide to grooming, race and religious hatred, and weapons and violence. These libraries, combined with real-time monitoring, incident captures and a log of all student activity, helps schools and districts to pinpoint at-risk behavior, while empowering educators to intervene where necessary and before an incident escalates.

Impero is currently offering this grant program for schools across the United States, which are dedicated to overcoming the challenges associated with student safety and security online. This program will save schools thousands of dollars by integrating Impero’s solutions across their digital environments.

To apply for the grant, simply register your interest by clicking here and submitting a 50-word message about why your school or district would benefit from this funding.
