All K-12 schools in Pennsylvania are required by state law to participate the Safe2Say Something program. The program requires our school district to train students in our middle and high school how to utilize a 24/7 tip line, app, and website to submit anonymous tips regarding student and school safety. Tips are triaged by analysts in the Office of the Attorney General Crisis Center. They triage each tip to ensure there is enough information to act upon, determine if the tip is life safety or non-life safety, as well as conduct on-going 2-way dialog with the tipster when needed. The crisis center sends all submissions to school administration and/or law enforcement for intervention. If needed, the crisis center may contact the tipster anonymously through the app.
Trained administrators will serve on our school district’s Safe2Say Team. Training and information was provided to students at the middle and high school. Students in our elementary schools will not be trained, but any student, parent, or community member is able to submit a tip using the Safe2Say Something reporting system.
