Safely Reopen Schools

    Telecenter U®, an advanced network-based school communications system from Rauland, now includes new features designed to help school districts, schools and classrooms operate within CDC guidelines during COVID-19. The new software and hardware components complement the existing integrated solutions designed for everyday education communications, scheduling, event management and emergencies.

    Telecenter U also includes body temperature sensing cameras for building entryways and custom cleaning buttons that track the cleanliness of the entire facility. The body temperature scanner alerts when a student, faculty member or visitor has a high temperature.  Telecenter U can log and track trends in high temperature cases over time. 

    Cleaning and Sanitizing Classrooms

    New custom cleaning buttons request and track the cleaning of classrooms across the entire facility, while the Telecenter U online mapping feature shows the cleanliness of the entire school at a glance. Status lights indicate when rooms need cleaning or are ready for use.

    Flexible Scheduling Features

    In addition to the new cleaning buttons and camera sensor features, Telecenter U offers everyday communications features that can aid in scheduling and social distancing efforts. The CDC recommends that educational facilities adopt a staggered or rotating schedule to reduce class sizes and dismissal times.

    Telecenter U scheduling provides flexibility and customization so that schools can pre-record specific messages for class changes. This feature also can be used to stagger arrival and drop-off times of students. Telecenter U can have multiple pre-configured schedules in one place on a single day, for example with early or later start and end of school day times.

    Everyday Messaging Reminders

    Telecenter U also can be utilized to provide regular PA announcements and message board alerts that may help reduce the spread of COVID-19. The CDC recommends reminding students and staff of hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette. Both audio and visual reminders can be scheduled district wide or single school paging from the web user interface or administration console.
