The Texas School for the Deaf has partnered with Anonymous Alerts to provide a state-of-the-art school safety app. Through an anonymous two-way communication channel, the app allows students, staff, teachers, and parents in the school community to anonymously submit alerts about suspicious activities, safety threats, alcohol or drug use, depression, harassment, family issues, campus safety concerns, and self-harm issues to school administrators or counselors.
Superintendent Claire Bugen praises the new app as a tool to help curb bullying and address school safety concerns. “School safety is a number one priority for us,” Bugen said. “We are thrilled to provide our teachers, parents, and students with this innovative tool to report any school safety concerns, whether it’s bullying, alcohol or drug use, depression, self-harm, or the potential of an intruder on campus.”
Students, parents, and staff members can download the Anonymous Alerts® app for free on Apple and Android devices and gain access to the service by using a simple activation code that will be provided by the school.
