KINGS LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT IMPROVES COMMUNICATION OF SCHOOL
SAFETY INFORMATION WITH NAVIGATE FLIPCHARTS MOBILE APP
WHO: Kings Local School District
WHAT: NaviGate Flipcharts, Developed by Ohio-Based Lauren
Innovations
WHEN: November 2014
WHERE: Kings Local High School, Junior High School,
Intermediate School, three Elemetary Schools and Preschool
WHY: As part of its efforts to improve school safety, Kings Local
utilizes the NaviGate Prepared® emergency response safety
system. When Lauren Innovations launched its new NaviGate
Flipcharts mobile application, Kings Local couldn’t wait to take
advantage of this unique technology. In less than two months
administrators, teachers and staff throughout the district were
viewing their building’s emergency operations plans from their
mobile phones – anytime, anywhere.

CONNECTING SCHOOL PERSONNEL WITH
EMERGENCY PROTOCOLS AND SCHOOL
SAFETY INFORMATION, 24/7
Designed with K-12 schools in mind as
a way to further enhance school safety,
NaviGate Flipcharts takes a school’s
emergency and crisis preparedness
flipcharts – that are traditionally found
in hard copy form – and features them
in an easy-to-use and easy-to-access
mobile app.

After a one-time download, the
NaviGate Flipcharts app allows
administrators, teachers and staff
quick and convenient access to their
school’s customized flipcharts from their
mobile phones or other app-compatible
devices. Users simply log in with the
credentials they have been provided and the flipcharts are automatically loaded onto their device – making
the easy-to-read and easy-to-transport electronic flipcharts available around-the-clock, from any location –
with or without an Internet connection. Each time a user opens the app, an automatic update is conducted to
ensure all users are viewing the most current information.
EASY TO CREATE, EASY TO UPDATE, EASY TO USE
Through a quick and simple process, school administrators have the opportunity to build, edit and review
all flipcharts in one comprehensive location while maintaining complete control of updates and published
content.
They can customize their flipchart content into the application, assigning labels, color-coding, creating call
lists and more. They can also assign different user login and password information to various employee or
staff groups. For example, teachers may receive one set of credentials while administrators receive another.

SEAMLESS IMPLEMENTATION AND IMMEDIATELY IN THE HANDS OF ADMINISTRATORS, TEACHERS AND STAFF
In less than two months, administrators, teachers and staff throughout Kings Local School District were fully
educated and actively using the NaviGate Flipcharts technology. As a district, Kings Local notes they are
always looking for and evaluating opportunities to improve safety and sources to access safety information
and NaviGate Flipcharts has been an ideal solution for the district.
“I personally believe every district struggles a bit with how to keep their employees up to speed
with school safety information. The NaviGate Flipchart app provides easy access to every
employee’s building Emergency Operation Plan (EOP). What a tremendous resource the app
has become for our administrators as they now have, at their fingertips, a tool they can use in
staff meetings to review a particular annex of their plan. In the event of a school incident, the
EOPs are in your hands continuously. In our district, we also added an emergency phone list
for accessing important phone numbers in the event of a crisis. There is really no question that
Lauren Innovations has hit a grand slam with its Flipcharts app.”
- Steve Waldmann, Manager of School Business Affairs, Kings Local School District

Kings Local school officials and local first responders use the up-to-date information found within the
NaviGate Flipcharts app to train for crisis situations, improve emergency response, and take action
when needed.

The flipchart app eliminates the need to carry this procedure
and protocol information in bulky, hard copy form, giving
Kings Local personnel – especially teachers – one less thing
to think about in an emergency. It also eliminates costly
printing associated with hard copy flipcharts.
“After looking at the flipcharts, I realized that my cell phone
contained nearly every disaster scenario that could occur at
any given time. A teacher, staff member or administrator could
quickly act to access any given situation by simply clicking
on the appropriate flipchart. The NaviGate app gives staff
members instant recommendations on how to proceed for a
given emergency. This tool continues to put the Kings Local
School District on the cutting-edge of safety devices.”
- Dustin Goldie, Social Studies Teacher, Kings High School

Kings Local
School District has
created flipcharts specific to:
• Emergency contact
information
• Procedures for emergency drills
such as tornados, fires or
lock-down scenarios
• Evacuation routes and
reunification locations
• Student fights, unrest,
demonstrations
• And more
