Threat reporting

Beginning this week, Pennsylvania school students and others will have a new method of alerting officials to possible threats.

During his report to the school board Monday night, assistant superintendent Jeff Hadley said that students were getting training for “Safe 2 Say Something,” a Web site and app where individuals will be able to anonymously report tips about issues of concern including social media posts or talk about threats of school violence or suicide.

Hadley said that statewide, the tips will all be screened at one place and appropriate action, if deemed necessary, will then be taken.

Pennsylvania lawmakers approved the mandatory “Safe 2 Say Something” plan in June, 2018.
