Alert Solutions

Alert Solutions can send notifications to parents via phone, email or text message. The communication suite also includes Speak Up!, an anonymous two-way communication platform that can be used to report bullying and to manage event safety. It also includes an automated reports module and a parent portal.

Anonymous Alerts

Students can report sensitive issues — such as bullying, drug abuse and depression — to school administrators or counselors via the Anonymous Alerts mobile app or web link. Administrators receive messages on their phone and email, establishing an anonymous two-way conversation about an incident. The Anonymous Alerts mobile app is available at the Apple Store and the Google Play store for Android.

TIPS Prevention Program

TIPS (Threat Assessment, Incident Management and Prevention Services) is a set of web-based tools designed to empower students, parents, teachers and staff to report bullying or other safety concerns confidentially. Once reports are made, TIPS provides a central and secure system for school personnel to investigate the concern and objectively assess the situation. Staff can then track and document actions taken, and monitor the students involved.
