How we help create safer K-12 schools

Emergency Management Program

When you became an educator, you did not necessarily sign up to be an emergency manager. Our program is an ideal solution for administrators seeking a turn key solution.


School Safety & Security Assessments

Quickly uncover critical hazards, loopholes and vulnerabilities within your district and glean critical information on what really works and what is simply a waste of money.

Staff Development Training

The greatest investment you can make is in people. Develop the capabilities of staff in all roles to prevent and respond effectively to virtually any emergency.



Emergency Planning

Our emergency planning services include emergency plan development as well as evacuation, parent reunification, ICS and media relations planning and more.

School Safety Consulting

Reduce the stress, complexity and hassle of managing safety and security in your schools. Our team of experts will help navigate you to developing safe and preapred schools.



Our engaging keynote and staff presentations bring unique insight, actionable steps and motivation to create the optimal school climate for safe schools.

What School Districts are Saying About Altaris

Our experience working with Altaris has been very positive. CEO John LaPlaca and his staff are very knowledgeable and have a very high level of expertise in K-12 safety and security. We most like the immediate response we receive whenever a question  or concern arises.

Dr. Edward Fuhrman

Superintendent, Croton-Harmon Union Free School District

We have had a great experience working with Altaris.  Having a facility in New York City only a short distance from the United Nations is a huge concern.  Altaris has helped us navigate the complex area of safety, security and emergency preparedness and quickly put us on the road to a safer school.

Mr. Thomas Mitchell

Chief Operating Officer, Lyceum Kennedy International School

Altaris has been great to work with.  They have helped up us to identify numerous improvement opportunities and continually work with our staff to strengthen their ability to prevent and manage emergencies.
