Graffiti, vaping, sextortion, drugs: A new school app can report school safety issues

March 09, 2023

A second app — which functions strictly to report an emergency — is available to school employees and identifies the location of the sender. The app available to anyone is called Los Angeles Schools Anonymous Reporting or LASAR and is designed "to increase community focused public safety in and around our schools." The safety apps are among four applications being rolled out, including one that allows parents to access student records from their phones. Officials said other K-12 districts are already using such an emergency app. Carvalho has yet to present his comprehensive school safety plan.
