Student Assistance Programs are collaborative teams of trained school district and County Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol Service agency personnel who meet regularly to assess, refer, and support student needs in order to remove barriers to their learning.
In 2018, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed Act 44 of 2018 into law. One aspect of Act 44 requires the Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General to implement a school safety anonymous tip program. In partnership with a non-profit organization, Sandy Hook Promise, the Office of Attorney General activated the "Safe2Say Something" anonymous tip line.
The S2SS tip line provides three methods for students or adults to report anonymous safety tips or concerns:
*S2SS app: available for Apple and Android devices
*S2ss Crisis Tip line (24 hours a day):1-844-SAFE2SAY
For additional information and resources, please visit the S2SS website. https://www.safe2saypa.org.
We appreciate your support as we work together to maintain a safe learning environment for all members of our school community. Please continue to promptly report any tips relating to school safety and security to any school employee, local or state law enforcement or by submitting a tip through Safe2Say Something.
