FSC Mobile App
"If you see something, say something!"
As part of our ongoing safety and security efforts, Fulton County Schools offers a Quick Tip function on our FCS app. There are posters in schools with steps for students to follow if they have something to report. Contact information is optional, so reports can be made anonymously. The app also has the capability to upload a picture, so students can share threatening or inappropriate social media posts or any activity believed to be suspicious activity.
When a report comes in through Quick Tip, it is received and investigated by the Department of Safety and Security. They determine where the information gets routed from there (e.g., school principals, Human Resources, the Fulton County Schools police department). The Department of Safety and Security takes all reports to Quick Tips seriously: Any Quick Tip received by the district is investigated.
The Fulton County Schools app is available for iPhones and Android phones. If a concerned student or parent does not have access to the app, Quick Tips can also be reported on our website. Another contact option is to email email@example.com.
Fulton County Schools is committed to providing a safe learning environment for our students, and we are continually seeking ways to improve. Students, parents, and staff are all encouraged to install the Fulton County Schools app, which includes access to Quick Tips.
