West Point Rolls Out School Safety App

WEST POINT, Miss. (AP) – The West Point-Clay County Consolidated School District is looking to enhance the way that students throughout the district are protected.

During a recent forum, The Daily Times Leader reports (http://bit.ly/1Q3GQF6) District Assistant Superintendent Tim Fowler informed members of the public about a new phone app that he believed would be a good investment for the district.

Fowler says the app, SchoolGuard, has a number of features, but its main feature does four separate things: First it dials 911 for the user, while it is doing this it also notifies everyone else in the building that has access to the app, all law enforcement within a five mile radius of the school and all other personnel in the school district that an incident is occurring.
