Gladewater Independent School District in Gladewater, Texas is one of the latest school districts to implement a new program to confront bullying using cell phones and psychology. In less than a week, the high school librarian had set up an anonymous tipping program called uTip – The Bully Buster. The program works by blanketing the school with posters that both explain how the program works while warning would-be perpetrators that anyone can report them with unprecedented ease. A simple, benign text message is all it takes. The uTip program is provided free of charge for the first year by Omnilert's e2Campus, the leader in school safety communications.
Omnilert, LLC today announced the release of the tool that allows multiple emergency communication actions to sequentially deploy with predefined scenarios, making emergency response quicker, easier and more effective. With Scenarios, client administrators can build multiple unique actions including initiating an outbound conference call, sending different messages to different groups with different endpoints, or even requesting status or feedback. A dispatcher of alerts can later deploy all of this with one click. This new breakthrough capability is available to all Omnilert clients Monday, April 15. Live demonstrations are available in e2Campus booth #1143 at the National School Boards Association Conference and booth #503 at the ACUTA Annual Conference, both in San Diego through April 17.
