Marco Island, Fla. (PRWEB) January 18, 2013
Taking a new approach to improving school safety, GlobalCall Enterprises has developed and released a new system called School Text Tips.
Students are the best eyes and ears to learn about potential threats to other students, staff or the school itself.
Text messaging is the number one way students communicate today.
School Text Tips provides a specialized local number that would be posted by the school for students to see. Students are able to use their cell phones to send anonymous text messages instantly to school officials regarding potential threats.
The first high school in the United States to implement the system was Marco Island Academy and had this to say about it:
“In the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy, Marco Island Academy implemented the School Text Tips system in an effort to protect our students and teachers.
Within 48 hours of using the system, the school received an anonymous tip from a student regarding another student’s safety.
Within minutes of receiving the tip, the guidance counselor was able to approach the affected student and proactively address the concern.
The School Text Tips system is a simple and easy way for students to communicate with officials while protecting the reporting student’s anonymity.
Thank you for helping us save lives.”
Jane Watt, Board Chairman, Marco Island Academy
In an effort to get this life saving system out to schools, GlobalCall Enterprises is providing School Text Tips at a highly discounted cost to schools.
As the specialized numbers for each area are limited, this will be available on a first come first served basis.
