Pinellas County Schools is the 7th largest public school district in Florida and 26th-largest in the nation. Over 100,000 students are enrolled across 140 schools within the county.
A student collapses in the middle of class. The teacher races over to the student to help. Now the teacher needs to call for help, but the classroom phone is 30 feet away. To get help quickly, the teacher instructs another student to pick up the classroom phone and dial the front office extension. The helper student fumbles around attempting to operate the classroom phone, wasting precious seconds during a medical emergency.
Pinellas County Schools needed a way for students and staff to easily call for help, without the use of a phone system and complicated pin codes.
Pinellas County Schools installed call buttons in every classroom in addition to the existing classroom phone lines. When a call button is pressed, a call is initiated via the InformaCast mass notification system from the classroom to the front office. The front office can see exactly which classroom has pressed their call button, and communicate via built-in microphone in the Wahsega IP speaker.
