Work is underway to beef up security in Fayetteville City Schools.
A subscription to the STOPIT App, an anonymous reporting tip line for students, is part of the new security measures.
“They key is hopefully administrators will get leads about things going on where a kid wouldn’t come to the office to tell or a child wouldn’t tell his teachers,” said Perrin.
Staff will be trained on the new app, and flyers will be sent home with students to explain to parents how the new app works. At first, some 700 students will be covered through the subscription, those at Fayetteville Middle and Fayetteville High.
