School virtual tours have become an important way to learn about school facility safety and emergency preparedness. The startling statistics from the National Center for Education Statistics (2017) demonstrate that school violence is a growing problem in America. Nearly 79% of public schools reported experiencing at least one act of violence in the 2015-2016 school year, a total of 1.4 million crimes annually over 10 years.
To address this pressing problem, virtual tours of schools are a terrific way to guarantee the security and safety of everyone at school before they arrive. From facility-specific tours to full tours, educational institutions can provide an extra layer of protection for their student body, staff members, and faculty.

Exploring the Benefits of Virtual Tour
Conducting school facility security assessments can be invaluable in protecting school communities. School virtual tours provide school administrators with a unique opportunity to identify potential risks and develop school safety plans to mitigate those risks. By examining the school’s facility security, school administrators can identify areas of vulnerability and create school safety protocols to prevent school violence and provide a safe learning environment.
School virtual tours can also assess school evacuation routes and points of ingress. This can help school administrators create school security plans that are well-defined in the event of an emergency. Additionally, our products help school administrators understand the school layout and plan for school lockdown protocols.
Finally, our programs provide school administrators with a chance to create a school safety culture. By utilizing school virtual tours, school administrators can understand how to foster an environment of respect and safety both within the school and beyond school grounds.
