NaviGate Prepared Brings School Safety Software Platform to New Jersey Schools
Partnership with New Jersey Association of School Administrators (NJASA) Helps Pave the Way
NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio – September 19, 2016 – The New Jersey Association of School Administrators (NJASA) and
NaviGate Prepared are partnering to bring the leading school safety software to
New Jersey schools in an effort to help districts uphold the New Jersey Administrative Code 6A:16-5.1
School Safety and Security Plans requiring each school district to have a
school safety and security plan that meets the minimum state requirements.
Designed to assist school administrators with
safety plan development and enhancement, the NaviGate Prepared Safety Plan

The complete NaviGate Prepared system includes the
ability to organize and store safety information to share with staff and first
responders, log and track safety drills and interactive floor plans.
Additionally, the NaviGate Prepared app offers staff immediate access to
emergency procedures and the ability to instantly view building and class
roster information that is synced with the school's Student Information System
(SIS). This gives teachers the ability to account for
students, by name, during drills or emergencies. Knowing exactly who is
unaccounted for gives administrators and first responders valuable information
and streamlines emergency efforts.
“Our organization appreciates the extent to which NaviGate Prepared is helping schools accomplish their objectives when it comes to safety and emergency preparedness,” states Dr. Richard Bozza, executive director, NJASA. “By offering the tools and services to generate safety plans, connect with first responders and provide school staff powerful safety apps, our community is better prepared in case of emergency.”
