Updated: Oct 12, 2019
Kokomo24/7 is scheduled to exhibit at the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference with demos of its School Safety Cloud™ platform, an A.I.- based, incident management and anonymous incident reporting K-12 safety solution.
Kokomo24/7®, an A.I.-driven, cloud-based student safety platform that helps ensure safe learning environments, today announced that it is slated to sponsor and exhibit at the EDUCAUSE Annual conference on October 14-17, 2019, in Chicago, Illinois. EDUCAUSE brings together professionals and technology providers from around the world to share ideas, grow professionally, and discover solutions to today’s education challenges. Kokomo24/7 will be in booth S3 to discuss student safety and how their innovative product, Kokomo24/7® School Safety Cloud™, leverages A.I. with years of school data to predict possible student safety incidents like bullying, suicidal tendencies, and other disruptive student-learning events. The result for teachers, administrators and resource officers is proactive intervention to student safety incidents.
Kokomo24/7 will be presenting in “Start-Up Alley” at EDUCAUSE. Start-Up Alley and Start-Up Alley Graduate companies are leveraging technology in innovative ways to address key issues in higher education including access, student success, retention, and cost. All participating companies are less than 5 years old and employ less than 25 employees.
“We’re excited to present in the Start-Up Alley section of EDUCAUSE and continue the discussion on the impact student safety has on learning,” said Daniel J. Lee, CEO and founder of Kokomo24/7. “Safety and security are incredibly topical issues right now in school districts. Embracing the benefits of A.I. with available data is a great step in providing safer learning environments for our K-12 schools and universities.”
Kokomo24/7® School Safety Cloud™ helps provide safe learning environments for students and school faculty through easy-to-deploy, intuitive safety solutions designed to identify potential bullying, suicide, and other disruptive learning events. Three components comprise the Safety Cloud: Incident Case Management (IMS), Anonymous Incident Reporting System (AR), and Emergency Operation Center (EOC).
Kokomo24/7’s IMS learns from the past and analyzes data to predict outcomes and provide intervention before incidents happen. With AR, students, parents, and faculty, in the district where deployed, can submit safety concerns from the mobile app or website portal powered by the A.I.-based Triage Scoring System™ to help identify and intervene at-risk individuals and incidents. Kokomo24/7’s EOC provides school operations and safety officials with instant situational awareness so emergencies are managed from informed decisions. The A.I. built into Kokomo24/7 Safety Cloud™ can watch cases from hundreds of schools in a school district, identify red flags, and notify school administrators in real-time so faculty and safety officials can intervene in the quickest time possible prior to incident.
Kokomo24/7 has deployed the Kokomo24/7 School Safety Cloud™ at the second largest school district in America. The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), serving nearly 750,000 students, uses Kokomo24/7 to deliver school safety solutions with scalability, security, and the latest technologies provided by Kokomo24/7’s partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Kokomo24/7 is an approved Public Sector Partner (PSP) of AWS and a member of EdStart Community within AWS.

Kokomo24/7 ® is a cloud-based student/employee safety solution based in Chicago, Illinois, and has decades of experience in delivering public safety solutions to organizations such as FEMA, the Los Angeles Unified School District, the New York Police Department, and the United States Air Force. Some years ago, founder Daniel J. Lee started the journey of Kokomo with a vision to bridge a more tightly woven gap between technology and public safety. Kokomo is the name of a county in the state of Indiana near Purdue University's Main Campus in West Lafayette, where some of the company’s founders acquired their engineering degrees. They always felt "safe" when they saw the sign "Kokomo County" after hours of driving down I-65 from Chicago. Lee’s vision is that the name Kokomo24/7 ™ will give school districts and local governments that same sense of security from the experience with his team and products.
