SAFE TO SAY SOMETHING

In 2018, the General Assembly passed Act 44 mandating the establishment and use of the “Safe2Say Something” (S2SS) anonymous reporting system by every Pennsylvania school entity by January 14, 2019. S2SS is a life-saving and changing school safety program that teaches students, educators, and administrators how: to recognize the signs and signals of individuals who may be at risk of hurting themselves or others and (2) to anonymously report this information through the S2SS app, website, or 24/7 Crisis Center Hotline.

S2SS works through 5 steps:

  1. A tip is submitted via mobile app, website, or by calling the PA based 24/7 Crisis Center
  2. The tip is then triaged by the Crisis Center to gather enough information to act on it
  3. The tip is delivered to the impacted school and, as needed, local law enforcement via 911 County Dispatch
  4. The school and, as needed, local law enforcement assess and intervene with the at-risk individual
  5. The school then closes out the tip and reports actions taken as a record for their school

Safe2Say Something is an extension of the Sandy Hook Promise mission to prevent violence in schools by helping educate youth and adults to identify, intervene, and get help for at-risk individuals by calling 9-1-1, telling a trusted adult, or using an anonymous reporting system.

Any questions regarding our district’s use of Safe2Say Something can be directed to Mr. Rob Eckenrode, Governor Mifflin C.O.O.
