Calloway County students, parents and community members can now anonymously report any unsafe situations in school (bullying, weapons, violence, or other safety concerns) using a new online reporting and prevention tool, the "Safety Tipline Online Prevention," or STOP! Tipline.
"Our hope is that students who may be reluctant to make a face-to-face report of bullying or some other safety issue may be encouraged to share this information when offered an 'online' option," Superintendent Steve Hoskins said in a statement. "By giving students a way to report concerns anonymously using their tablets, computers or smartphones, we can improve communications and then take the necessary steps to address any problems before they escalate."
Students, faculty and community members can access the tipline by locating and clicking on the STOP! Tipline logo on any Calloway County school home page. The online tip form doesn't require identification of the person making the report, and individuals can either leave a tip or choose to be contacted.
