Safe2Say Something Program
This program, mandated under Pennsylvania Act 44 to be implemented in all school districts in January 2019, teaches students and staff how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, of individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others. Further, it educates them to SAY SOMETHING to a trusted adult OR to use the Safe2Say anonymous reporting system.
What does the Safe2Say program educate participants to do?
- Recognize the signs and signals of at-risk behaviors – especially within social media.
- Take every sign and signal seriously and to act quickly to get help by talking to a trusted adult OR by reporting it anonymously through the Safe2Say reporting system.
- Respond to and manage the submitted tip via school-based multi-disciplinary educator and administrator teams.
How can someone report an anonymous tip through the Safe2Say reporting system? Adults and youth are able to report tips anonymously through the Office of Attorney General’s 24/7 Crisis Center (1-844-SAF2SAY), through a mobile app (apple and android), or through Pennsylvania’s Safe2Say Something website www.safe2saypa.org.
