The Toledo Catholic schools have come up with a site that kids can email all kinds of info to. Some examples were if you heard someone making threats, someone bragging about bringing a gun to school, bullying etc. The eighth graders interviewed said that it takes the fear out of reporting problems. Obviously someone monitors this and notifies the school in question of the problem. Sounds like a good beginning to increased communication with kids and schools. Don't think it might work for all school districts but for Toledo parochial schools it is a good tool.
