Positivity can come from many things; an inspirational quote, a warm hug, or an inviting environment. K-12 school principals and superintendents understand the importance of a positive environment outside of school, which is why many are determined to create positive environments for students, staff, and faculty within school grounds as well. Maintaining a constructive school culture has been shown to have a great impact on student academic performance, as well as teacher retention. One Massachusetts school linked a positive school culture to a 100% college acceptance rate, and another Colorado school found their positive school environment reduced teacher turnover, according to Education Dive.

With the push of a button, either medical, fire, critical report, active assailant, or non-emergency, the appropriate people are notified with key details about the emergency type and location.
Seconds count in an emergency, which is why many K-12 school districts have chosen the Rave Panic Button to protect their students, faculty, administrators, visitors, and staff. Watch this short video below to learn more.
