As explained in a previous message shared in January, all Pennsylvania School Districts must offer Safe2Say Something training to staff and students in grades 5 through 12, as mandated by PA Act 44. Safe2Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General.
The program teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to “say something” before it’s too late.
All reports submitted via the anonymous Safe2Say Something tip line will be assessed through the Crisis Center at the Office of Attorney General and passed to the school districts and police if they are determined to be credible.
There are three ways to submit an anonymous tip via Safe2Say Something:
The District hosted a Sandy Hook Promise Trainer provided one-hour mandated training presentations to staff and students in grades 5 through 8 on Monday, March 11, 2019. The trainer held one session for Middle School students and another for 5th graders. High School staff and students will be trained on Tuesday, March 12, 2019.
Chartiers Valley School District encourages anyone with information relating to the safety of our schools to report these concerns immediately. In addition to the state’s Safe2Say Something reporting system, students are strongly encouraged to make reports directly to a trusted adult school district official.
