Let's "Talk About It"

AnCom has developed "the nation’s first and only anonymous online messaging and emergency notification service for schools." This service allows students and teachers to communicate with each other anonymously. It is meant to be "a preventative solution focused on bridging the communication gap between students and faculty to foster a safer, more comfortable learning environment." This service allows students to communicate with school staff and inform them of their own, or their peers, problems. For school staff it serves as an "early waning system." It allows them to proactively communicate, intervene and resolve school violence before it can occur. What an excellent way for students to report bullying, gangs, threats of violence, and cheating. In older students, it can also be used to report more serious issues such as drug abuse, alcohol abuse, depression, stress, etc. Currently over 120 schools in the U.S. are using this amazing technology. For a list of schools, go here. Wondering how to get "Talk About It" for your school? You can find out how be reading this.
