Alabaster schools launch app which allows students to report bullying

Fox 6 (Alabaster, AL) Jun 11, 2015

"Alabaster schools have some new policies and an app to help deal with bullying. The app was just created and will be in place when students return in the fall. It's called Anonymous Alerts.

Students can just download the app and if they are being bullied or if they know of someone who is being bullied. They can then shoot a text anonymously about the situation.
