As of February 16, 2020, all school phones must be able to directly dial 9-1-1 without pressing another digit before dialing out and school security and administration must be notified (Kari’s Law). Further, the Ray Baum Act requires telephone systems to provide additional information such as room number & floor number to adequately identify the location of the calling party. This requirement applies to both fixed and mobile phones. Ray Baum must be implemented by January 6, 2022.
