Say Something Anonymous Reporting System

posted Dec 7, 2018, 12:07 PM by Allison Morris
On December 7th, Sandy Valley Local Schools, along with many districts in Stark County, launched the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System. This program teaches students, teachers, and administrators how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, of individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and Say Something to a trusted adult OR use its anonymous reporting system. Specifically, the program educates participants to:

  Recognize the signs and signals of at-risk behaviors – especially within social media

  Take every sign and signal seriously; act quickly to get help by talking to a trusted adult OR

  Report it anonymously through SS-ARS 24/7 Crisis Center, mobile app, or website

  Respond to and manage the submitted tip via a multi-disciplinary educator and administrator teams

  Sustain the curriculum and awareness via student clubs, in-school activities and call-to-action weeks

Our students often are aware of the problems their peers are facing, so we must empower them to know the danger signs and give them the tools to help each other with the assistance of trained and caring adults. As you know, most conversations are taking place on social media, therefore it is critical that we teach our students to be looking out for one another as these digital conversations are taking place. SS-ARS teaches them what to look for in text, video and photos while empowering them to act quickly to help a fellow student.
