The next stage of the GreenZone initiative is called ProText My School. Bobby Kipper, founder and executive director of NCPCV, is partnering with a company called Voice to set up school-specific texting services.
“Every school will be provided their own telephone number for parents and students to be able to text information of concern to the schools. It’s just a new form of technology,” he said.
Kipper said he does not believe kids will leave voice messages to report incidents like bullying, so texting is a better option.
