The ACPS Anonymous Reporting System allows students, staff, families and community members to securely and anonymously report concerns about someone in our school division who has experienced bullying or another incident that affects safety and well-being, or who may potentially be a danger to themselves or others.

To report an incident, please download the app below and use the online form in the app, which is available in multiple languages.
