The news from e2Campus comes on the heels of an announcement from the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services about the re-launch of their website www.StopBullying.gov.
Already in place at schools around the country, uTip Bully Buster combines technology with psychology to decrease bullying and crime at school. SMS text messaging technology puts the power in the palm of students' hands – enabling them to discreetly and anonymously report a situation immediately, so schools can respond quickly.
Free promotional materials show students how to anonymously send a tip while simultaneously sending a warning to would-be bullies. When posters are displayed in a prominent area, they acts as a constant reminder to bullies that hundreds of eyes are watching and that anyone – even a friend – can now anonymously report an incidence of bullying.
The company is offering free one-year pilot programs to schools that sign up for uTip before August 31, 2012.
