FOX 7 Discussion: Push for more mobile school safety tools

A panic button on your smartphone is one of the newest safety tools at an Austin school which keeps expanding student safety with technology.

Right now, school districts are looking for innovative ways to keep their students safe. The Texas School for the Deaf is doing so by adding a panic button to its collection of smartphone safety tools.

The panic button is part of the Smart Button app created by Anonymous Alerts.

TSD Superintendent Claire Bugen and Anonymous Alerts president Gregory Bender join Marcel Clarke to discuss the button and what it means for school safety.
