Improving School Security Across the Nation 

School security is at the forefront of all parents’, teachers’, and student’s minds today. But until recently, there hasn’t been a standardized solution to protect schools. What security solutions have worked for other school districts? And what methods haven’t worked? Schools have been largely left to wonder and fend for themselves—until now. 

The Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS) provides the most comprehensive security guidance and best practices to K-12 schools, vetted by education and public safety experts. 

As part of our commitment to school security, Fearing’s has become an official partner with PASS, the leading school safety organization. PASS relies on its partners’ support, and we’re proud to be involved with such an important organization. 

Here’s how PASS’s mission is helping school security here in Milwaukee and nationwide.

The PASS Mission 

Established in 2014, the Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS) unites education and public safety experts to provide proven security solutions to K-12 schools. The sixth edition of PASS’s Safety and Security Guidelines walks school administrators, school boards, and public safety professionals step-by-step through how to better safeguard schools. The 84-page document covers best practices for school drills, student and staff identification, video surveillance, alarm monitoring, and much more. 

PASS’s Guidelines provide the knowledge schools need in our modern world and are continually updated as new technology and research emerge. The guide’s meticulously vetted information covers all layers of school safety, from the classroom/interior to district-wide safety decisions. 

PASS Achievements 

Beyond developing the PASS Safety and Security Guidelines, the organization has achieved many advancements in school security, including: 

  • Incorporated PASS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization 
  • Reached thousands of schools through Safety and Security Guideline downloads 
  • Recognized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security website 
  • Established a cross-functional Advisory Council 
  • Developing training programs for PASS Partner organizations 

Fearing’s is proud to be a PASS partner, helping the organization achieve these milestones and further protect our country’s children.
