The Ames Community School District is pleased to bring our students a communications tool called Anonymous Alerts®.
What is Anonymous Alerts?
The Anonymous Alerts anti-bullying and safety app reporting system helps combat bullying and other negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.
The system allows for 1-way or 2-way anonymous encrypted communications between submitters
(students, parents, or community members) and district administration and/or school staff. Users of the system have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their identity when submitting a report.
How does it work?
Students, parents, or other school personnel can make a report through the Ames CSD Anonymous Alerts website or through a mobile app.
