Anonymous Alerts

Reports can be made on this website using the following link:
Diboll ISD School District currently uses a communication tool called Anonymous Alerts.  Diboll ISD has implemented the Anonymous Alerts system for students and parents that allow for anonymous reporting of bullying, cyberbullying, safety threats, and other urgent incidents. 
What is the Anonymous Alerts app?
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.  
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?
To use the Anonymous Alerts app, students, parents, or other school personnel can simply visit the Diboll ISD Schools website and click on the "Anonymous Alerts" button to submit a report expressing their concern. 
Anonymous Alerts mobile applications can be downloaded directly from the Apple, Google Play, or the Chrome stores. 
Diboll ISD supplies students an activation code, making the app remarkably easy to use and students select which school the message should go to.  In addition, informational posters explaining how to use the app will be displayed throughout schools and offices in the district.

See Something. Do Somethings. Report It.
Diboll ISD makes every effort to help foster safe school environments for all. Creating a safe learning environment for children and teenagers is paramount in instilling the desire to mentally and emotionally grow without fear. 
Here are a few concepts and ideas to help inspire a culture of preventing bullying and encouraging healthy social behaviors. 
1.  Be observant:  stay knowledgeable about the events happening in kids' lives, not only in school, but online and at home. Monitoring the behaviors of kids and teens online, in school, and at home is crucial in detecting whether they are experiencing situations of potential cyberbullying, harassment, etc. Understanding the signs places you on the forefront of taking action that ultimately helps kids and teens from further harmful activity. 
2.  Be a good role model:  Younger children often emulate what they see parents, teachers, peers and other adults do.  Setting an admirable example by showing people sincere compassion and understanding the consequences of potentially harmful actions can serve as excellent teaching tools that encourages positivity in all facets of their lives. 
3.  Teach kids the importance of kindness:   It is important that kids know that kindness can go a long way in preventing bullying, not only by showing the power and effects of kindness in helping others mentally and emotionally, but by understanding how kindness can lead to making new friends and meaningful connections with others.  Being a friend in need can be powerful in making children feel less isolated. 
4.  Make sure there is a reliable source of communication: Reassuring kids and teens of the importance and availability of anonymous, non-anonymous, and even school counselor communication channels allow for higher levels of comfort in expressing crucial issues and concerns, especially with mental health struggles.  Mental health in developing  minds is of the utmost importance in establishing constructive behaviors as they continue to mature.  Providing a reliable, easy-to-use method to share information benefits everyone involved as it leads to more efficient resolution. 
5. Teach kids the impact bullying can have on others:  Bullying can cause serious harm and negatively affect lives.  The potential impact of bullying cannot be understated and getting kids to thoroughly understand this concept is a pathway toward a "Speak Up" and "Use Your Voice" mindset that will ultimately help their peers and teacher accountability.  
6.  Don't be a bystander, Stand Up!  If you see or witness bullying, cruel behavior, or online harassment, the best course of action is to "Stand Up" and do something by sharing the information directly with a trusted adult or school official.
