Top Three Motorola Two Way Radios for K to 12 Schools

Anyone working in the K to 12 school system anywhere in Canada understands the importance of being responsible for the safety and well being of children and young people. It’s a responsibility that makes reliable communication a must for teachers and staff alike.

As a result, K to 12 schools in Canada rely on the dependability of two way radios to facilitate day-to-day operations, help teachers and staff stay connected across distances on large campuses, enhance safety and security, and enable fast response in emergency situations.

Communication Demands for K to 12 Schools

Schools have a tall order – from Monday to Friday, morning and afternoon, they need to ensure the security of hundreds and even thousands of students and staff while controlling costs, eliminating inefficiencies, and facilitating learning.

Students, teachers and staff expect information to be instantly accessible, and two way radios enable real-time exchanges that preserve safety and boost internal productivity. As schools continue to get bigger, it’s crucial for large properties to have the highly reliable and secure communication that two way radios can offer, especially in light of heightened concerns about the safety of students and staff.

Furthermore, maintenance workers and campus security often need to communicate under difficult conditions, whether it’s in a noisy hallway or in a building with poor reception.
