The Midfield City School District has obtained new technology designed to allow students to more easily and quickly submit anonymous reports to school officials regarding bullying and other issues.

The district has added a new communications tool, called Anonymous Alerts, which allows students to use their Internet-connected devices and mobile apps to communicate with school officials.

The use of the new program began Sept. 3, according to a news release from Anonymous Alerts.
