Blackboard School Safety

Blackboard School Safety is a complete system designed to let you take control of your student's safety and school's physical security.


Prevent, Prepare & Manage with Blackboard School Safety

School safety can be impacted by a wide range of events like weather, bullying, active shooters, drugs, gang activity, theft, vandalism and more. You need a system that lets you manage all of these from one place before they occur, while they are happening, and after the crisis is over.
