FORT WORTH, Texas — The Fort Worth Independent School District (FWISD) recently selected advanced security and safety application provider Metrasens to bolster safety measures for graduation ceremonies and extracurricular events.

Serving nearly 75,000 students across 140 schools, FWISD conducted a meticulous internal assessment of various technologies, ultimately selecting Metrasens as the preferred solution. FWISD deployed six Metrasens Ultra systems during its 2024 graduation ceremonies.

The deployments strengthened safety protocols while synergizing with existing security measures, underscoring the district’s unwavering commitment to safety as evidenced by its comprehensive security and safety policies.
