North Carolina Behind on Roll Out of School Safety App
North Carolina students and parents were suppose to have access to an app this school year that would allow them to anonymously report tips on potential school dangers. However, the state superintendent said it has been delayed.
North Carolina Superintendent Mark Johnson made a promise to the students and parents in the state earlier this year: they will be able to anonymously report school dangers through an app when school begins.
However, it is now October and the app has not been rolled out at all.
“We’ve already built the connections in schools. It’s the 9-1-1 centers that have unfortunately taken time to get them on board,” Johnson told NBC Charlotte.
Johnson said the majority of centers are ready and excited for the rollout, however, the others he has to “kind of twist their arms a little more to say this happening.”
The app, which is called Say Something Anonymous Reporting System, is sponsored by the Sandy Hook Promise and has already been implemented in more than 5,000 schools across the nation.
