In light of the recently signed Alyssa’s Law in Texas, schools across the state are grappling with the urgency of enhancing safety and security measures.

Under this new mandate, all Texas public schools are required to install panic alarms in classrooms and other strategic locations throughout the campus. Netsync, already a trusted partner to over 60% of state school districts, is now stepping forward with a series of new, innovative Silent Panic Alert Solutions to help ensure schools remain safe havens for administrators, teachers, and students.

Following is a brief overview of the new requirements for Alyssa’s Law. We’ll also explore how Netsync’s solutions offer schools critical advantages in terms of adaptability and cost-effectiveness – along with resources for tapping into available Federal and State grants.

1. Answering the Call of Alyssa’s Law

Signed into law this past summer by Texas Governor Gregg Abbott, Alyssa’s Law (SB 838/HB 669) mandates that all school districts and open-enrollment charter schools must be equipped with silent panic alert technology – beginning in the 2025-2026 academic year.

The new mandate also requires that school staff be trained on how to use these alarms effectively, with the ultimate goal of providing more rapid and efficient means for staff and students to notify authorities during an emergency.

2. Immediate Alerts in Critical Moments

In crisis situations, seconds matter. Whether it’s an active shooter, a medical emergency, or a fire, getting the right information to the right people in real-time can make a significant difference in outcomes. At the first sign of a threat, Netsync’s Silent Panic Solutions can instantly connect with first responders and security teams through a smartphone, wearable badge, physical desk-mounted button, or IP phone device.

3. Real-Time Communication with First Responders

At the simple touch of a button Netsync’s Silent Alert Solutions empower all pertinent stakeholders to orchestrate a unified response to incidents. This level of transparency and
real-time, two-way communication not only speeds up response times, but also provides first responders with vital information they need to ensure they are better prepared upon arrival.

4. Streamlined Responses with Automated Workflows

The power of automation in critical situations cannot be understated. Netsync’s Silent Panic Alert solution activates assets across an entire communication ecosystem. From live mapping that provides insights into incident locations, to automated notifications across a plethora of devices, schools can ensure that stakeholders are informed and ready to deploy the right actions needed to mitigate the emergency.

5. Customizable and Integrated

Every school, every facility, is unique. The needs of an urban high school differ from those of a rural primary school. Netsync recognizes this, offering solutions that not only integrate seamlessly with existing systems, but also allow for customization to ensure that each institution can tailor the alert solutions to its specific needs.

6. A Trusted Partner for Texas Schools & Communities

Netsync’s reputation in Texas isn’t just about technology – it’s also about trust. As a dedicated SLED partner for over 20 years, their deep-rooted relationships with over 60% of state school districts are a testimony to its level of commitment and expertise.  

Beyond the tech, Netsync provides comprehensive training sessions for staff, as well as ongoing support and refresher courses to ensure all users remain confident in activating and using the system effectively. Additionally, their website boasts a wealth of resources to help schools navigate the various resources available for Federal and State School Safety Grants.


In this new era of Alyssa’s Law, Netsync’s Silent Panic Alert Solutions create a clearer vision for the future of school safety.  More than just responding to threats, it’s about fostering environments of trust, assurance and peace of mind anywhere on campus.
