Safe & Anonymous Tips Website for Kids

As counselors we constantly tell students that things that they discuss with us are kept between us (unless they are a threat to someone else or themselves).  Some students may not be comfortable in a face to face setting sharing personal issues/concerns, so that's where Anonymous Tips comes in.  Anonymous Tips is a website that allows kids to type a message (anonymously of course) of inappropriate behaviors/concerns that they or someone they know may be experiencing.  You will have to create an account and register your school so that someone from your school (counselor or administrator) will receive the tips.  There is also a way for students to leave tips for law enforcement agencies.  I think that this tool is an excellent idea for students who may be afraid to share troubled situations with.
