Blackboard Inc. has launched TipTxt™, a two-way texting service that encourages students to confidentially notify school officials of activity related to bullying or school safety, and will offer the service for free to all K-12 schools and districts in the country.

TipTxt is a tipline that allows for confidential text conversations between students and school officials about bullying and issues that relate to bullying, such as abuse, self-esteem or confidence problems. Officials can provide resources, advice or other follow-up to help on a case-by-case basis.

Blackboard is offering TipTxt at no charge to every public, private and parochial K-12 school in the country.
