Illinois School District Adopts CyberBully Hotline Program to Assist with Anonymous Bully and Incident Reporting


Award-winning program allows students and parents to anonymously report bullying and other issues directly to school administrators


ST. LOUIS, MO - Dupo Community Unit School District 196 in Dupo, Illinois has become the latest district to implement a CyberBully Hotline program.

The award-winning CyberBully Hotline program provides students and parents with a safe pathway to report bullying, school violence, fighting, mental health problems, and other difficult issues.

“We’re excited that Dupo CUSD 196 has selected the CyberBully Hotline as their anonymous reporting system provider," said Joe Palacios, CEO and co-founder. “Schools all over the country are using the CyberBully Hotline to help address important issues, and we're happy to have another Illinois school district join the CyberBully Hotline family.”

Students and parents in Dupo CUSD 196 will be able to use the CyberBully Hotline to begin a two-way anonymous dialogue with school officials on any issue. Reports can be submitted via text message or voice call and are sent directly to school administrators.

"The CyberBully Hotline's unique ability to meet students where they live - on their cell phones - has led districts across the nation to make the CyberBully Hotline their anonymous reporting program of choice," said Mr. Palacios.

Dupo CUSD 196 educates approximately 1,200 students in Dupo, Illinois, across the Mississippi River from downtown St. Louis, Missouri. The district maintains one elementary school and one secondary school.

"We know that the CyberBully Hotline is having a positive impact on learning communities in many states," said Mr. Palacios. "We're confident that the CyberBully Hotline can offer a new level of safety to Dupo CUSD 196 students and parents."
