DALLAS (1080 KRLD)- Students in the Dallas ISD can now report any threats to their campus through a cell phone app or a dedicated hotline.

The Dallas ISD rolled out the national Say Something Anonymous Reporting System at schools with grades 6 through 12 on Monday.

Students can use the app, website or hotline (844-5-SAY NOW) to submit tips about threats to campus. bullying or sexual harassment to the National Crisis Center. Those threats will be evaluated, with credible threats being referred to campus officials and local law enforcement for action.

"We believe it is also our responsibility to help identify behaviors before they escalate into problems, and the See Something model does that, ultimately preventing serious acts from ever occurring," said Dallas ISD Deputy Superintendent Susana Cordova.

The app is already being used by more than 5,000 schools and school districts across the country.
