Students attending some Fresno County, Calif., schools soon will be able to anonymously report bullying and other crimes by using a smartphone application called TipNow. School employees and parents also will be able to use the app, which was developed by the Silicon Valley-based company Resiligence. "One of the key things that drew us to this is often times at school, kids won't come to us face-to-face and say anything for fear of retaliation from whomever is bullying them or giving them some trouble," said Washington Colony Unified Superintendent Craig Bowden.
