Maryland district adopts new tip text conversation service

from THE Journal

A Maryland school district has voted to implement a $9,995 tip text service for a year after testing a 60-day pilot program in two high schools that generated three reports of students contemplating suicide, two reports of students passing nude pictures of other students on Instagram, as well as five bullying reports, three reports of students smoking e-cigarettes, and one report of a student dealing drugs. "Mobile phones and texting are very comfortable ways for our students to communicate," said Superintendent Carol Williamson. "We have been looking for a way that students would be able to communicate concerns to their school administrators. Our highest priority is the safety of our children." more
