DONALDSONVILLE – Ascension Public Schools and the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office have launched an anti-bullying campaign.

The campaign, "Report Bullying!" features an anonymous text message reporting system that is monitored by the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office. To report bullying, students can text to 847411, type in "APSO" and then text their tip.

The texting system is a way for students to report inappropriate behavior and bullying in a safe and anonymous way, David Alexander, Ascension Public Schools Superintendent, said.

The sheriff's office monitors the reporting app and can assign a member of the juvenile division to work with the school to investigate the matter.

"Bullying is aggressive and dangerous behavior that should never be tolerated," Sheriff Jeff Wiley said.

"APSO has partnered with the school system to ensure a quality educational environment and safe schools for all students," Wiley said.
