As required by Pennsylvania Act 44 of 2018, Central Valley School District will participate in the Safe2Say Something Anonymous Reporting System beginning Monday, January 14, 2019. Safe2Say Something is a school safety tool for students, staff, and communities to anonymously report unsafe, potentially harmful, dangerous, violent, or criminal activities in a school entity or the threat of activities in a school entity.
Through Safe2Say Something (S2SS), students, staff, parents/guardians, and community members will be able to submit an anonymous tip through the Safe2Say Something system in one of three ways:
Once the report is made, the following steps will take place:
- The crisis center, staffed by the Office of the Attorney General, will review, assess, and process all submissions.
- The crisis center will send all submissions to a team of Central Valley administrators and/or law enforcement officials for intervention.
- If needed, the crisis center may contact the tipster anonymously through the app.
Safe2Say Something is a national program that was developed by the Sandy Hook Promise. It was designed to teach youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves and to others, and to “say something” before it’s too late.
The District strongly encourages students to report information to a trusted adult, and continue to utilize 9-1-1 in a true emergency situation.
