In response to increased concern about school safety, SchoolSpan is offering a Safe Schools Grant that provides its Anonymous Alert tip line service free of charge to school districts in the U.S. and Canada, effective immediately. As a public service to help improve school safety, SchoolSpan will provide this service to schools at no cost. SchoolSpan Anonymous Alert is a web-based module that enables anyone in the school community to send an anonymous message to school officials, warning them of drugs, guns, violence, unusual student behavior, unauthorized visitors or any potential student crisis that warrants immediate attention. Information is immediately relayed via email directly to the school principal or district administrator for proper action. The system tracks IP addresses of tipsters and schools can set an optional password to limit access to those that may provide the tip to school officials.
