Anonymous Alerts Program
Fayette County Public Schools has implemented a new confidential reporting system for secondary students and parents called Anonymous Alerts for the 2023-24 school year. We are excited to offer this service to our stakeholders as another layer of safety for our students and faculty members. Anonymous Alerts allows students and parents to privately contact school administration to report weapons, drugs, terroristic threats and other safety concerns. This reporting platform will help Fayette County Public Schools maintain a safe environment where teaching and learning can take place for students to reach their full potential.
Fayette County Public Schools has determined that it is important to introduce a new confidential reporting tool called Anonymous Alerts®. Anonymous Alerts® allows secondary students or parents to quickly, easily, and anonymously report urgent information to school officials across all of our school campuses. The system encourages students, parents and staff to confidentially report weapons, drugs, terroristic threats and other sensitive topics through private messages to our administration. Fayette County Public School does not support, encourage, or tolerate any behavior that prevents any student from reaching their full potential.
We also believe that the best way to address problems that our students face in school is personal contact with a teacher, school administrator or counselor and we strongly encourage and fully support that continued practice. However, we do know that sometimes there is a concern that a student or parent may want to communicate anonymously.

The mobile apps and web-based reporting system provides secure 1-way or 2-way encrypted messages, increasing the flow of important information to school officials. Message topics for submission may include bullying, cyber-bullying, family difficulties, self-harm/cutting, drug and alcohol abuse, student depression, sexual harassment, gang related issues or strange/abnormal student behavior.
All reports remain completely anonymous, although submitters have the option to reveal their identity if they prefer to have a person-to-person discussion. The program is monitored from 7AM until 5PM and should only be used for serious and urgent matters. Indeed, if something disturbing or life threatening occurs at other times, it is imperative to call 911.
We feel that we have a responsibility to offer this tool to our community in order to protect the safety of our students, providing avenues for confidential disclosure when there is something serious that is troubling them. At Fayette County Public Schools, our goal is to enhance the student’s learning experience and limit any roadblocks to a student’s success, giving everyone the opportunity to succeed.
