Introducing the Stay Safe. Speak Up! Mobile App

Posted by Emily Goebel Filed under: *Hot Topics*, Bullying, General, Student Violence, Student Well-Being

There is nothing more important than student safety. To make it more convenient for your staff, students and community to securely report safety concerns, we created the Stay Safe. Speak Up! mobile app.

Free to download on iOS and Android for PublicSchoolWORKS StudentWatch customers, the app is part of the PublicSchoolWORKS Stay Safe. Speak Up! Student Safety Reporting System, which empowers students and families to report safety concerns, including bullying, discrimination, thoughts of suicide, self-harm, suspicious behavior, and more.

Individuals now have three ways to report safety concerns anytime, anywhere: via a live attendant on the phone, an online form, and now the mobile app. Once a report is submitted, key administrators are automatically notified via email, or, if the threat is imminent, by phone.

All reports are stored in the PublicSchoolWORKS online system allowing districts to investigate incidents quickly, keep proper documentation and monitor safety trends.

To help you spread the word to your greater community about the new app, we are providing districts with a free safety reporting toolkit, which includes posters, stickers, a template press release, and other resources to help educate your entire school community about all available reporting methods.

We can help set your district up for academic success by making student safety your top priority. For more information or to bring Stay Safe. Speak Up! to your district, visit staysafespeakup.app.
