SchoolGuard® was developed by the Guard911 family of apps to protect K-12 schools against senseless acts of violence by shortening the police notification and subsequent response time. The SchoolGuard® smartphone app provides a panic button for teachers and staff on their phone by immediately alerting nearby law enforcement through the Hero911® rapid-response network, while simultaneously calling 911 with the touch of a single button. Guard911 is now a sponsored program of the Illinois Association of School Boards, Illinois Principals Association and Illinois Association of School Administrators. There is a one-time activation fee and monthly service fee. Click here for more information.
