Reopening Elementary & Secondary Education Facilities

Meeting the Evolving School Health and Safety Mandates


As private businesses and public spaces prepare to reopen, schools especially must swiftly and flexibly evolve their safety standards to prevent Coronavirus spread and support compliance with new protective measures. National health and safety agencies are issuing recommendations to guide schools as they welcome students back into the classroom.

Surveillance networks and complementary video analytics technology enable schools to effectively monitor and maintain compliance with public health measures such as social distancing, mask wearing and more.

Have you considered investing your COVID grant funding in a video analytics solution?  

The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSA), which passed on Dec. 27, 2020, provided $54.3 billion in supplemental ESSER funding, known as the ESSER II fund. States receive funds proportionate to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title-IA allocations to each state, and the approved uses of funds include technology that can assist with preparing schools for reopening, in addition to preventing, preparing for, and responding to COVID-19.

Uses of Funds The CARES Act includes allowable uses of funds related to preventing, preparing for, and responding to COVID-19.  Note that the “additional” LEA allowable uses of funds under the CRRSA Act already were permitted under the CARES Act. Same as ESSER Fund (CARES Act):Note that the “additional” LEA allowable uses of funds under the CRRSA Act (addressing learning loss, preparing schools for reopening, and testing, repairing, and upgrading projects to improve air quality in school buildings) already are permitted under the CARES Act.

The role of intelligent video analytics has never been more critical in protecting the public and supporting compliance with evolving safety measures. BriefCam’s platform approach to Video Analytics introduces a robust solution to the most critical public health use cases, so that facilities and campuses of all sizes and types can deploy or expand the applications of their existing video surveillance investments and enhance public health and safety.
