Education Week--More Schools Are Using Anonymous Tip Lines to Thwart Violence. Do They Work?
After students in one Oklahoma high school finish a lockdown drill, they immediately hear a plea from administrators over the intercom: Report your safety concerns.
Students can reduce the already slim chances of an attack on their school if they anonymously share tips about violence, threats, and bullying through a smart phone app or a quick phone call.

Education Week--What's the Toughest Part of ESSA For District Leaders?
It's (almost) the end of the summer and educators are preparing to go back to school. Nearly every state has an approved Every Students Succeeds Act plan ready to implement.

That's a somewhat subjective question, and we weren't sure how district leaders would answer it. So we asked a few experts.
