Safe2Say Something Anonymous Reporting System
Act 44 of 2018 brought on a myriad of changes for school districts in regards to safety and security measures. One of these changes was the establishment and use of the “Safe2Say Something” (S2SS) anonymous reporting system by every Pennsylvania school entity.
Safe2Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of 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 is too late. Safe2Say Something makes it very easy to confidentially report safety concerns. If you see something, say something!
Students at ELCO are trained on the Safe2Say Something at the beginning of each year. While our students are always encouraged to reach out to a trusted adult at school if they have concerns about another student, Safe2Say Something provides an additional way that these concerns can be reported.
