Countability is a team of professionals dedicated to the ongoing work of enhancing school security procedures by harnessing existing and emerging technologies

The Challenges

In a case of an emergency, teachers need to respond to the situation as quickly as possible while making sure their student headcount is accurate. The emergency response officials need to be notified immediately and verify the headcount.

The Solutions

A component ecosystem for the school and emergency services that provide teachers with a system enabling them to account for every student. The authorities need to be alerted immediately and need access to a checklist of students for a headcount.

PowerSchool Integration

By integrating with the PowerSchool API, the app maintains a real-time list of students who were present in the class.

Student Headcount

Teachers can mark students accounted for on the app; the response officials can track each student. They can verify or manually account for a missing student in their Countability app.
