Everyone deserves to feel safe and supported while they are on our campuses. The safety and well-being of our students and staff is our top priority -- and requires a proactive approach to violence prevention.
That is why we are happy to introduce the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System to our District. We have trained our students on when and how to use it, and it is now live.
The Say Something Anonymous Reporting System is a research-based violence prevention program offered by Sandy Hook Promise, a national nonprofit organization. It teaches the warning signs of potential violence or self-harm and provides students and staff with secure ways to share safety concerns through a mobile app, website, or phone call.
More than 5,000 schools nationwide are using this program. Administrators and school staff report that their students feel safer—and lives have been saved. This program will further enhance the student protections we have in place.
We have included information about what the program is, how students can use it, and why we are adopting it in our schools below.
