School District is committed to the safety and well-being of our students and
educators. We believe this commitment includes the implementation of programs
that involve parents, teachers, support staff, administrators, local law
enforcement, mental health & wellness professionals, and elected officials
to take meaningful action to protect our students, staff, and community.
One such program that our district is rolling out is the Safe2Say Something (S2SS) program. S2SS is an anonymous reporting system recently mandated by Pennsylvania state law designed to help students and staff to recognize the warning signs and signals (especially on social media) of individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others. The S2SS program trains students and school staff members to treat every warning sign seriously and to act quickly to get help by talking to a trusted adult and/or by reporting it anonymously via phone, mobile app, or website to the Pennsylvania S2SS Crisis Center. District staff members will be trained to respond to and manage tips that are submitted in coordination with state and local law enforcement officials.
is based on a three-step system:
- An anonymous tip is submitted
via one of the following options:
- Website: www.safe2saypa.org
- Mobile App for Apple and Android Devices
- All calls and tips are received by the 24/7 S2SS Crisis Center.
S2SS Crisis Center analyst receives and reviews tip information.
- The tip is triaged and categorized as either life safety or
tip is then sent to school officials and law enforcement (as needed) via text,
email, and/or phone call.
- School officials and law enforcement intervene and/or offer
officials and law enforcement (as needed) investigate, assess, and intervene
with reported at-risk individuals.
officials report their outcomes into the Safe2Say Something platform and close
out the tip, ensuring accountability for every tip submitted.
S2SS program and curriculum is funded and managed by the Pennsylvania Attorney
General’s office through a partnership with Sandy Hook Promise, a national
non-profit organization working to improve school safety. The curriculum is designed to be
age-appropriate and research-based.
orientation sessions for grades 6 through 12 took place on February 11, 2019. Additional materials and related resources specific to S2SS can be found at the bottom of this web page.
