This is a new one to me. I wonder if this is common practice. Our new high school principal is offering the students large amounts of money, up to $500 to tell on other students for acts of vandalism, bomb threats, etc.
I am not sure how this money is funded. Does anyone else out there have this in your child's school?
I have mixed thoughts on this. I see problems with retaliation, false accusations, etc.
Thoughts or input?

We have this (or something similar to it) through our law enforcement. It's called 'CrimeStoppers'. Anyone can call and report a crime with the possibility of a reward but the twist is, is that this program is promoted in school as well. We have posters all over campus with this info on it. But as far as it being specific to the school? Nope, never heard of such a thing.

Default Different from Crime Stoppers

I don't think that this program is related, I think this is just something that the principal came up with.

In fact, I know it is not related, because the kids have to come directly to the principal, no anonymity, to cash in on the reward. They were told that they had to be "brave enough to come to the principal and tell"
