LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Clark County School District leaders unveiled a pilot program for an instant alert system at several of the district's schools.
Leaders held a press conference at Mojave High School on Thursday to discuss school safety developments and updates.
A badge made by the Atlanta based company CENTEGIX allows a teacher to press a button that will send a wireless alert to school administrators and police if there is an emergency on campus. It can send either a routine staff alert if there's some sort of fight or medical situation or initiate a school-wide lockdown in a critical emergency.
“It will allow our staff a quick and easy way to alert us and district leadership that there’s an emergency on a campus and campus leadership that things need to be addressed," Lt. Bryan Zink of CCSD PD, said.
