TCEA Partners with Alertus to Offer School Safety Grant

school safety grant

Technology serves a number of functions. It can help educators create effective learning, assist in simplifying administrative responsibilities, and even help keep students, staff, and faculty safe.

That’s why TCEA has partnered with Alertus Technologies to award a school safety grant for a full emergency notification system to one of our members (see eligibility requirements below). The estimated total value ranges up to $75,000, depending on the size and needs of the selected school. By partnering with Alertus to provide this grant for customizable mass notification systems, we’re working to expand access to a foundational element of ed tech: school safety.

The Emergency Preparedness Grant includes:

  • Alertus Mass Notification System Software
  • Alertus Enhanced Notification Services and Support
  • Up to 40 Alert Beacons
  • Up to 4 Duress Buttons


Applicants must be a registered non-profit organization or a government entity such as a school, library, or public agency.

About the Program

Since 2002, Alertus has been a pioneer in the emergency mass notification space, helping organizations find innovative solutions to emergency preparedness. Through the Alertus Emergency Preparedness Grant program, under-resourced organizations will have access to hardware and software solutions to effectively prepare and respond to a crisis situation.

Interested TCEA members can apply for the Alertus Grant via the online application form. Priority will be given to high risk and high-need organizations.

We are thrilled to be able to partner with Alertus to give our members the opportunity to give their students, staff, faculty, and communities the peace of mind in knowing that when an emergency happens, they will be able to send and receive potentially life-saving notifications quickly and clearly through the Alertus Mass Notification System and its integrated devices.

You can learn more about the program on TCEA’s Grants page. If you have any questions about this program, please email kristy@tcea.org.
