White Plains-based Anonymous Alerts, a patented new mobile app for use in fighting bullying, cyberbullying, and other concerns, has been recognized as one of the “Top 100” innovations and products by District Administration Magazine, a publication for K-12 educators.
The selections were made by leaders of school districts throughout the United States from over 2,100 nominations.
The 100 products and innovations featured in the magazine’s 2015 survey represent a showcase of new trends in education, cutting-edge software, and useful tools for teachers, and innovations designed to provide greater safety and security for America’s students.
“We’ve been using the Anonymous Alerts program for nearly a year. Our school is a safer place now that students have a better way of reporting campus concerns, including bullying and cyberbullying,” said Mark Burroughs, Assistant Principal, San Pasqual Union School District, Calif.
The Anonymous Alerts system encourages students to anonymously report bullying, cyberbullying, depression, family issues, drug and alcohol issues, depression, dating violence, and more to school officials.
The mobile app and hosted system provides anonymous 2-way communications between students and staff. Students who see bullying, harassment, or safety threats on social media can take immediate, proactive action by sending a screenshot of the post with a description to school officials.
“Students can play a significant role in school safety by reporting something they see online, hear, or experience as an early warning system for school officials,” said T. Gregory Bender, Anonymous Alerts President and CEO.
