K-12 Institutions Fix Multiple Issues With Synchronized School Clocks

April 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 81

In an educational setting, facilities that are built and run to educate our youth are notorious for their shoddy and sometimes inoperable equipment used in their buildings. Most of the time, this can only be attributed to tight budgets and stringent financials that the state is having trouble providing. The result in the lacking infrastructure is the creation of a do-it-yourself process by the school staff to carry out the everyday functions. For example, when the school clock in a classroom decides stop ticking, teachers may decide to bring in an old clock radio to keep track of their allotted class time. Sometimes, the school will resort to manually ringing bells at the specified time of a class change when their bell scheduling system becomes inaccurate. These temporary fixes the school implements may seem like they're saving the school some money, but in the long-run, it's actually hurting the schools organization and therefore deterring its operational efficiency.

There are many functions that are hindered by these interruptions in organization. The inaccuracy of the bell system causes students to arrive to class late-taking away from the allotted time of that particular class. Inaccurate school clocks on the walls of the building cause students to filter out to their busses at staggered times-preventing the busses from leaving at their appointed time. When these organizational issues take effect, the school loses efficiency and therefore wastes the time and energy of the staff. As more and more equipment fails and the do-it-yourself operations seem to grow, the school is using resources and staff for functions they should not be a part of.

How does a school or educational facility combat these issues? As illustrated above, many of these problems are at the root of the school's timekeeping system. When the clocks don't work or display inaccurate time, nothing impairs the organization and flow of operations in the building more. The only answer to these problems is the implementation of a synchronized school clock system. Not only will synchronized clocks eliminate the issues regarding accurate time displays, but with the right manufacturer, the system will have the ability to fix problems associated with the bell system as well.

With the addition of a master clock from the right manufacturer, the user may choose to implement options such as bell scheduling, or bell synchronization. With this feature, the bell system currently present in the building can interface with the master clock-proving the bells with the same, accurate time that the school clocks are receiving. For example, when the clocks strike 12 noon for lunch, the bells will all simultaneously ring with the time display, making sure all students filter out of their classes at the same time. Not only will students get to lunch on-time, but will be on-time to every class thereafter.

When synchronized school clocks are implemented into these institutions where the equipment within the building has outlived its operating lifespan, schools can expect an increase in efficiency across the board. No longer are faculty and staff being utilized for performing functions not part of their job descriptions and the flow and organization of the school is moving better than ever.
