LAUDERDALE COUNTY SCHOOLS ANONYMOUS ALERT PROGRAM
Student and staff safety is a top priority for the Lauderdale County School System. In providing up-to-date technology tools for student engagement and expanded safety options, the Lauderdale County School System uses a communications tool called Anonymous Alerts ®.
What is the Anonymous Alerts app?
The Anonymous Alerts anti-bullying and safety app reporting system helps combat bullying and other negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.
The system allows for 1-way or 2-way anonymous encrypted communications between submitters (students, parents, or community members) and district administration and/or school staff. Users of the system have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their identity when submitting a report.
How does it work?
Lauderdale County School System supplies students with an activation code, making the app remarkably easy to use and students select which school the message should go to. In addition, informational posters explaining how to use the app will be displayed throughout schools and offices in the district.
Anonymous Alerts will allow students in grades 5-12 to report suspicious activity. When a student submits the anonymous report, administrators will immediately receive a notification of the report and will be able to act on reports in a timely manner.
The system will be monitored from 7:30 to 3:30 each weekday.
