DUBUQUE, Iowa (KWWL) – Dubuque teachers and staff might soon be picking up papers, pens and a panic button.

In an effort to continue to improve school safety measures, Dubuque Community School District leaders are proposing staff be equipped with a so-called panic button app on their smartphones.  It would alert fellow staff and 9-1-1 to any emergency.

According to the Telegraph Herald, the contract for the app would be $30,000 per year, and it’ll be considered at next week’s school board meeting.
