Schools nationwide are investing in panic-button technology to safeguard students and staff from acts of violence. Hundreds of schools in a dozen states have moved to install the devices, which can cost between $300 and $800 per button. "It's basically a common-sense approach. Businesses have these buttons all over the place," said county council member Mario Civera, of Delaware County, Pa., where 237 schools are being equipped with panic buttons.
