How Does it work
Step 1 : School and district anti-bullying staff and administrators log in to the password-protected on line database. They select their district and school if applicable. Users can access the database from any web enabled computer, tablet computer, or smartphone.
Step 2 : The user enters the Dashboard
 
The dashboard is a user interface that allows users to create and manipulate information from a database.
Step 3 : The user selects from several options, including :
 
Create an incident report
Review Existing Incident Reports that have been previously submitted through the web and mobile apps (link to bullying reporting)
Run Aggregate Reports
Create An Incident Report
A user can choose to enter a bullying report using one of the customizable forms. A report number is automatically assigned to the case. They guide the user through a series of modules that ask for sets of information that can be entered manually or selected form a drop down menu. The user can enter information as the investigation proceeds and save and come back to the report as many times as needed. When the investigation is complete, the user can mark the report as "closed".

Users can leave notes for other users on the reports. For example, a principal can leave a note for a school anti-bullying specialist which he/she would see the next time she opens that report.
Review Existing Reports
Users can log in and review incidents in the database by selecting "Review Existing Incident Reports" from the Dashboard. Users are given permissions to access either incidents that occure in the entire district (i.e. anti-bullying coordinator, chief school administrator) or just in their individual schools (i.e. principal, anti-bullying specialist).

A list of all reports is listed. The user can select which report to review in detail by selecting "view". The user can navigate the customizable form to see what information is missing and add or edit the report as needed.
The user can view and print the complete report (see image below).
Run Aggregate Reports
Users can run aggregate reports to track trends over time. Simply select your school or district, dates, and categories.
This feature can be used to quickly generate reports for Board of Education, Department of Education, and PTA presentations.
