Safe to Say Something

In June, 2018 Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed Act 44 of 2018 into law. While Act 44 is expansive, a key mandate, the law requires the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General to implement a school safety anonymous tip program. In partnership with a non-profit organization, Sandy Hook Promise, the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General will activate the Safe2Say Something (S2SS) anonymous tip line effective January 14, 2019.

The Cocalico School District is committed to creating and sustaining a comprehensive, coordinated effort to improve the overall safety and well-being of our students, educators and administrators. To do this, we believe that there should be collaboration between community-wide programs and initiatives involving parents, teachers, administrators, local law enforcement, and mental health & wellness professionals to take meaningful action to protect our students.

One mechanism that will support our students is the Safe2Say Something (S2SS) anonymous reporting system. This program teaches students, teachers, and administrators how to recognize warning signs and signals and report threats via the anonymous reporting system. Specifically, the program educates participants to:

  • Recognize the signs and signals of at-risk behaviors (especially within social media)
  • Take every sign and signal seriously; act quickly to get help by talking to a trusted adult, or
  • Report it anonymously through the S2SS Office of the Attorney General 24/7 Crisis Center, mobile app, or website
  • Respond to and manage the submitted tip via a school-based threat assessment teams comprised of educators and administrators
