A Mobile Application for K-12 Schools and School Districts
This free, comprehensive tool allows school and school district personnel to walk around a school building and grounds and examine their safety, security, accessibility, and emergency preparedness. SITE ASSESS generates a customized to-do list that may be used in the short term and long term to address facility improvements, prompts teams to share pertinent information with first responders, and contains relevant resources on several education facility and safety topics. The REMS TA Center developed this secure mobile application to do the following:
Provide critical information about potential threats and hazards in a school community, which will be used by school planning teams as they develop the school’s all-hazards emergency operations plan (EOP);
Allow teams to add customized questions to the site assessment for their school, taking into account state and local requirements;
Equip practitioners with information and knowledge about key fundamental site assessment topics, such as Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) and Universal Design; and
Complement and support a school’s mitigation and prevention activities.
Neither the REMS TA Center nor the U.S. Department of Education will not see, collect, or store any data you enter into SITE ASSESS, besides the basic contact information that is collected upon initial registration. Any and all information entered into the mobile application is stored on the mobile device and not on the REMS TA Center’s or U.S. Department of Education’s Website or server. As such, the U.S. Department of Education and the REMS TA Center are not responsible for any damages resulting from the loss or theft of that information. Please note that certain optional mobile application features may transmit data.
