Cell Phone App Launched For Clayton County Schools

Atlanta (WAOK/AJC) — In an attempt to curb problematic incidents within it’s schools, Clayton County Public Schools announced Thursday that it has put together an application to use on smart phones called iWatch. The app enables students, parents, and community residents the ability to report suspicious or criminal activity as well as gives the school district a chance to send alerts to the community.

Chief Clarence Cox III, head of Clayton County’s Public Schools police force, is the creator of the application. Cox cites the August shooting at the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Dekalb County as the primary reason that he created the application.

The iWatch application is currently available for Android cellular devices. The Apple version is slated to be operational next week. To download the app please visit iwatchclaytoncountypublicschools.com.
