Mo. announces website to report school bullying
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri's school violence hot line is becoming tech savvy.
The Department of Social Services has announced a website where students, parents and others can file anonymous reports of school violence, such as fights, bullying and vandalism.
The electronic form is made up of 10 questions, and most information that could identify the tipster is optional.
Missouri has had a telephone hot line for anonymous reports of school violence since 2001.
Officials say they receive as many as 15,000 hot line calls a year, mostly involving assaults, bullying or threats.
