CLAY COUNTY, Fla. - A new app to keep students and staff at Clay County public schools safe during emergencies was introduced Thursday night during a board meeting. The K12 Panic Button app made by Mutalink is something that can be used during an active shooter scenario or similar situations. Addison Davis, the Clay County school superintendent, said the app directly links schools and law enforcement officials using video and audio.

"This app eliminates 50% of the time for an individual to go in and interact immediately with local law enforcement agencies or fire rescue," Davis said. They can call law enforcement. They can call fire rescue, first aid or ... for administrators to attend a classroom to address undesired behavior." The school board said the new app will cost $80,000 to implement. It … [Read more...] about ‘Panic Button’ app to be used in Clay County schools

Kristin Grubb was inside a classroom in Tanner Duckrey School, located on Diamond between 15th and 16th streets, when she saw something she would not be able to forget. “The teacher would say, ‘Take out a pen or a piece of paper,’ and students did not have them,” said Grubb, the director of Faculty Affairs at Temple University. “So I thought, ‘how do we leverage our resources as a university to help the surrounding community?’” Through a joint partnership between the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Liberal Arts Alumni Association and the College of Education, Grubb is hosting the fourth annual school supply drive for Duckery. The drive will run until Oct. 30 and is expected to donate more than 1,000 school supplies to the elementary school. Since its inception in 2014, the drive donated about 8,000 items, Grubb said. In its first two years, the drive only serviced Duckrey. In 2017, it expanded to send supplies to the Alliance for … [Read more...] about School supply drive fills critical need for local schools
