SWANZEY — The Monadnock Regional School District sent home a letter on Friday to notify parents of an app students have been using called Whatsgoodly.
The app allows users to create multiple choice question surveys that others can vote on. Though many of the surveys are harmless, some students in Monadnock are using it as a form of cyberbullying because everything on the app is done anonymously.
Monadnock superintendent, Lisa A. Witte, wrote a letter to notify parents that the district is aware of the situation and that the app cannot be accessed on the district's networks or any of their devices.
Monadonck isn't the only district that is experiencing problems with the app. Soon after it was addressed by Witte, Keene High School began experiencing similar problems.
"Though there are some positive polls, the majority that I have seen are mean spirited and intended to hurt people," Keene High School Principal, Jim Logan wrote to parents.
In Logan's letter to parents, he encouraged them to have a conversation with their children about the situation.
Both school districts will continue to monitor the situation.
