Flagler County considers tracking online school threats

School Board to discuss purchase of $18,000 program


PALM COAST, Fla. – The Flagler County School Board will consider using a social media tool to track school threats made online.

The board will hold a workshop Tuesday afternoon to discuss the software, which costs more than $18,000.

Officials said the tool alerts the district to any threat that is shared socially. It can also help minimize false threats more quickly.

Money for the program would come from a half-cent sales tax.
