The “see something, say something” method can often be linked to life-saving interventions. The hope for the North Carolina new school safety app being unveiled on Thursday is just that.
State Superintendent Mark Johnson along with educators, law enforcement, counselors and elected officials announced on Thursday the selection of the anonymous school safety app that will be used by public schools in North Carolina.
The app will enable students, educators, parents and other to anonymously report concerns or behavior they have witnessed that might signal a safety concern.
It is designed to go beyond preventing school shooting and aims to aid other issues including sexual assault and bullying.
