LITTLE ROCK, AR -- An Arkansas native created an online reporting system to help keep your kids safe at school.

Douglas Ricketts of Clarksville recently launched "Take Action Reporting." It's a system that allows students, parents and teachers to report any incidents of bullying anonymously.

The former school principal says the system is easy to use. Schools who use it will have an icon on the school website. All you have to do is click it and it will bring up a form for you to fill out.

"Many times, I would find out later on that kids were being harassed or teased, and I was almost the last one to know and I started getting anonymous emails from parents so that made me think there needs to be a better way to communicate to schools," Ricketts said.

Ricketts says schools in California and Illinois are already using the reporting tool. He said he hopes Arkansas can try it out as well.
