Campus Eye App Protects Children from Cyber Bullying

Oct. 19, 2017--The Texas Bankers Association has teamed up with Kansas City-based Mobile Innovations LLC to make its Campus Eye mobile app available to Texas school districts as a tool to prevent cyber bullying.

 

On Sept. 1, 2017, Texas Senate Bill 179, known as David’s Law, went into effect. The bill requires Texas school districts to develop policies to help prevent and intervene in bullying and cyber bullying. A key component of this legislation is providing students the ability to report issues as they arise, enabling prompt action to address potential harm to those who are threatened.

 

The Campus Eye mobile app allows users to submit reports to school administrators for situations that include bullying as well as other safety-related matters. While this app provides a solution for compliance of this new law to school districts across Texas, the legislation does not include funding for the schools to implement preventative programs.

 

This is where Texas community banks come in. In collaboration with the Texas Bankers Association, Mobile Innovations has agreed to work with banks to provide its app to schools across Texas. Banks have the opportunity to sponsor use of the app in their market-area school districts.

 

For additional information about the Campus Eye app or the program, contact Rob Sweeney, CEO of Mobile Innovations, or call him at 816-268-2581.
