Members of the Big Red Community are encouraged to speak up if they know of bullying or other safety concerns impacting schools in Belton ISD.
Parents, students, staff and community members can all report safety concerns confidentially through the district’s Anonymous Alerts online reporting system.
“Often people know unsafe things are happening but aren’t sure who to tell,” Michael Morgan, assistant superintendent of operations, said. “We want this tool to be accessible for everyone, so there’s an easy way to share the information you know with people who can do something about it.”
Anonymous Alerts can be accessed at http://www.anonymousalerts.com/beltonisd or by downloading the free Anonymous Alerts app and using the activation code “beltonisd.” A link to the website is programmed on all school-issued devices for easy access for students.
Through the form, reporters can indicate a school connected to an incident, describe what happened and attach screenshots of texts, photos or videos.
“This is a way to empower our students — and the entire community, really — to partner with our schools on safety,” Morgan said. “It takes all of us being alert to what’s happening around us to keep kids safe.”
