About School-Radio

Affordable Two-Way Radio Solutions For Preschools, Elementary Schools, Middle Schools, and High Schools

Two-Way Radios Designed for Schools

School-Radio provides affordable, easy-to-use communication and GPS tracking solutions for schools. Our products help keep students safe and improve school operations. With School-Radio, administrators can communicate with staff and students quickly and easily, no matter where they are. In addition, our dispatch console and GPS tracking software give schools real-time location information for staff, buses, and other vehicles.

What Is Push-To-Talk over Cellular (PoC)

School-Radio uses Push-To-Talk Over Cellular technology, combining the basic Push-To-Talk form factor and features with smartphone connectivity into a single device. Additionally, two-way PoC radios utilize the 4G secure network to greatly reduce coverage issues experienced by traditional Push-To-Talk devices. Another key point is that you can communicate locally, regionally, or nationally using the mobile phone data network, instead of radio waves.

The School-Radio Difference

Keeping students safe on buses, in classes, on school grounds, and at sporting events is a primary concern for all school districts. With the push of a button and near-instant connection, schools and transportation companies can communicate in a building, on a bus, or across town, with coverage wherever you go!

Uses For Radios in K-12 Schools

Everyday School Communications

  • Details about bus pick-up, drop-off, and late arrivals or emergencies
  • Notify the maintenance staff of issues in the building
  • Teachers can call for assistance without leaving the students unattended in a classroom
  • Floating staff like nurses, school psychologists, and speech therapists who travel to other schools in the district will not lose connection outside your building

Communicate Clearly in an Emergency

Emergency School Communications

  • Alerting security when assistance is needed for an incident in the school
  • Notification of unwanted visitors at the front desk
  • Life-threatening emergencies
  • Reaching the nurse for a medical situation
