Oklahoma Schools Deploy Rave Solution
Wednesday, September 21, 2022 | Comments

Rave Mobile Safety will provide its AppArmor solution to K-12 and charter schools across the state of Oklahoma.

AppArmor’s custom-branded mobile safety, emergency notification, and hazard response apps have proven both scalable and effective in helping people during times of crisis. Oklahoma’s adoption of AppArmor comes after it was determined that an existing anonymous tip line solution, underwritten by a three-year Homeland Security Grant, was not being used by schools in the state. The Oklahoma School Safety Institute and Oklahoma School Division made the decision to pivot and power the schools’ anonymous tip program with AppArmor for the remainder of the grant period, which finishes at the end of 2023.

In the spirit of “see something, say something,” students, staff, and parents in Oklahoma can now confidentially share concerns about safety threats via AppArmor’s anonymous tip feature.

Rave Mobile Safety is no stranger to Oklahoma schools, and vice versa. Rave Panic Button, a safety app that communicates emergencies to 9-1-1, on-site staff, and first responders for integrated and immediate response, is already used in the state’s 1,845 K-12 public and charter schools. Currently, 92.4% of schools have opted in to use the Rave Panic Button app and nearly 88% of school personnel have set up “geo-fenced” rules for their campus, named their buildings and added staff members into the system. In fact, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt is a big proponent of the innovative safety solution and directed all schools to implement Rave Panic Button by September 1 amid heightened safety concerns.

“The safety of our students and staff in the state’s K-12 public and charter schools is paramount, and it is critical that we have real-time solutions to enhance safety and understand potential threats,” said Gary Shelton, program coordinator, Oklahoma School Safety Institute. “AppArmor has been successfully deployed in school districts across the country and nearly all the schools in Oklahoma have already embraced Rave Panic Button, so we are confident that AppArmor’s anonymous tipping capabilities will be utilized and that school safety efforts across the state will be strengthened.” With the deployment, Oklahoma joins Florida and Hawaii to becomes the latest state to offer AppArmor’s anonymous tipping solution.
