(Atlanta, GA) January 31, 2023 – Richland School District Two of Columbia, South Carolina, has chosen the CENTEGIX CrisisAlert™ solution to install in their schools. Richland Two includes 40 schools and centers—20 elementary schools, seven middle schools, five high schools, four magnet centers, one child development program, and one alternative school—serving over 28,500 students and over 3,800 teachers and staff. As the first school district in the state of South Carolina to choose the solution, Richland Two looks forward to using the CrisisAlert system as part of its new two-pronged approach to safety to empower their teachers and staff to call for help when they need it while keeping their students safe.
“The safety of our students, employees and visitors is our number one priority,” said Richland Two Interim Superintendent Nancy Gregory. “This innovative solution will help staff members and school teams to improve response to emergencies big and small and will further empower them to become more active partners in keeping our schools, centers and offices safe places to teach, learn and work.”
“As our first school district in South Carolina, we know that you’ll be looked upon as leaders in staff and student safety, going above and beyond what’s being done elsewhere in the state. We appreciate your desire to implement a system that will not only be there for the rare and extreme emergencies but that helps your educators and staff in everyday events. The Richland Two Community will know that their district leaders are looking out for them,” shared CENTEGIX CEO, Brent Cobb. He continued, “We’ve grown a lot nationally, but we’re especially looking forward to expanding our efforts into South Carolina and protecting even more students and staff. We want to be a pillar of safety for South Carolina communities everywhere.”
