Safety iPass makes pandemic safety easier and more effective for school communities

App of the Week

CrisisGo’s Safety iPass offers the most streamlined and secure way for schools to manage the full scope of their COVID-19 safety needs. As the result of our COVID-19 Crowdsourcing & Safety Research Project started in March 2020, Safety iPass provides schools with the technology needed to manage safety protocols and immediately respond to incidents while returning to school in a COVID-19 environment.

Schools use Safety iPass to safely admit students, staff, and visitors into school buildings or school buses by using the pre-certified digital badge to confirm that every person is safe to return. Like a “fast pass” for airports and services, Safety iPass speeds up the ability to confirm stakeholders' safety status and get them into a safe learning environment while monitoring school safety information for data-driven decisions.

With Safety iPass, schools can cover the full spectrum of COVID-19 safety, from pre-screening and entry management to actionable reports, close contact listing, and escalating safety data to local health departments.

 

 

Formats/platforms used:

Safety iPass can be used via email as well as through CrisisGo’s app available on mobile devices, tablets, and computers for IoS, Windows, and Chromebook operating systems.

School safety administrators can use CrisisGo’s app and online dashboard to manage their district’s COVID-19 safety through Safety iPass. Admins are immediately notified when suspected or positive cases are reported, and the district can use their safety information to determine potential contact points and make data-driven decisions regarding pandemic safety.
