Conducting Assessments

3.1 Preparing for Your First Assessment

Step 1: Gather Essential Information

Compiling all necessary documentation and information is crucial before beginning your first assessment with SITE| SAFETYNET℠. This includes the school’s floor plans, current safety policies, emergency response plans, and any previous safety audit reports.

Step 2: Assemble Your Team

Safety assessments are most effective when conducted by a multidisciplinary team. Assemble a group that includes administrators, teachers, local law enforcement representatives, and, if possible, community stakeholders. Each member brings a unique perspective, enhancing the assessment’s comprehensiveness.

Step 3: Familiarize Yourself with the Platform

Take the time to explore the SITE| SAFETYNET℠ platform, understand its features, and how to navigate the assessment tools. Utilize any tutorials or support resources available to ensure you’re comfortable with the software.

Step 4: Schedule the Assessment

Coordinate with your team to choose a date for the assessment that minimizes disruption to the school day. Consider notifying parents and the wider school community about the upcoming safety review, emphasizing its importance for enhancing school security.

3.2 Completing an Assessment

Step 1: Conduct On-Site Evaluation

Begin by walking through the school premises, using the SITE| SAFETYNET℠ mobile-friendly digital checklist as a guide. Evaluate both the exterior and interior of the building, noting any potential safety concerns or areas for improvement.

Step 2: Review Policies and Procedures

Examine the school’s existing safety policies and emergency response plans. Assess their alignment with best practices and identify gaps or areas needing updating.

Step 3: Input Data into SITE| SAFETYNET℠

As you complete each section of the levels, enter your answers into the SITE| SAFETYNET℠ platform. The system’s dynamic interface allows for real-time updates, accurately reflecting the school’s safety status.

Step 4: Finalize the Assessment

Once all levels and level sections have been completed and reviewed, finalize the submission through the platform. This will trigger the analysis phase, where SITE| SAFETYNET℠ calculates your Dynamic Safety Score (DSS) and generates an automated comprehensive safety report.

3.3 Viewing and Interpreting Your Reports

Step 1: Access Your Safety Report

Upon completion of the assessment, SITE| SAFETYNET℠ will provide this auto-generated detailed safety report, accessible through the platform. This report includes your Dynamic Safety Score, which highlights the school’s safety strengths and areas for improvement, broken down into three levels of 60+ sections and 900+ target questions.

Step 2: Understand Your Dynamic Safety Score (DSS)

The DSS is critical to your report, offering a snapshot of the school’s overall safety posture. A higher score indicates a more robust safety environment, while a lower score identifies areas needing attention. The report will provide insights into how the score was calculated and which factors influenced it the most.

Step 3: Review Recommendations

Alongside the DSS, the report will include specific recommendations for improving school safety. Based on the assessment findings, these suggestions are tailored to your school’s unique needs.

Step 4: Develop an Action Plan

Use the report as a foundation to develop a comprehensive action plan. Prioritize recommendations based on urgency and feasibility and assign tasks to specific team members—schedule follow-up assessments to monitor progress and update the safety plan as necessary throughout the school year.
