KNOX Co., Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Knox County Schools introduced a program this week that will allow students to anonymously send a tip to security or school officials.
This system, coined "Tip411", will allow students to report bullying, violence, drug or other issues with the click of a button using their cell phones.
"We want students to feel comfortable communicating with us in a variety of ways about issues that impact their safety and the security of their schools," Superintendent of Knox County Schools, Dr. Jim McIntyre said.
To use Tip411, students can send a text to 847411, keyword knoxschools, then a space, then input the tip.
