Florence 1 Schools Puts the Focus Back on Student Learning with Evolv Express Security Screening
The safety of students, faculty, and staff is a key consideration for Florence 1. “Safety is our number one priority from the start each day until we get our students home safely at night,” says Kyle Jones, Deputy Superintendent at Florence 1 Schools. “We want our faculty and students to focus on quality teaching and learning."
But with the metal detectors came many encumbrances. Long lines formed outside of school entrances. “We were screening students one by one, which created congestion, especially in our car and bus line area,” recalls Jones. “With the metal detectors, students lined up as if they were preparing for assembly,” adds Thomas Burton, Campus Monitor and Security at Wilson High School. “We could only screen one student at a time." Then Evolv was brought in. Through the implementation of the Express, Florence 1 Schools were able to achieve the following:
- Removed over 100 walkthrough metal detectors and replaced them with 23 Evolv Express system
- Cut the number of teachers and staff needed to manage security screening by over 85%
- Streamlined secondary security checks with contextual threat detections
