Safe2Say
Dear Charleroi Area Learning Community:

The Charleroi Area School District is committed to creating and sustaining a comprehensive, coordinated effort to improve the overall safety and well-being of our students, educators, and administrators

We believe this effort must involve community-wide programs and initiatives involving parents, teachers, administrators, local law enforcement, mental health and wellness professionals, and elected officials to take meaningful action to protect our students.

The “Safe2Say Something” (S2SS) anonymous reporting system has been implemented in our district. This program is mandated under PA state law/Act 44.  It teaches students, teachers, and administrators how to recognize potential warning signs and signals, especially on social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others. It encourages students to 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 – including on social media
Take every sign and signal seriously and act quickly to get help by talking to a trusted adult OR
Report it anonymously through the S2SS Office of the Attorney General 24/7 Crisis Center, mobile app, or website
Respond to and manage the submitted tip via school-based multi-disciplinary educator and administrator teams
Sustain the curriculum and awareness via student clubs, in-school activities, and call-to-action weeks


Our students are our most important resource in keeping our students safe because they are often aware of the problems their peers are facing. S2SS teaches our students how to recognize danger signs in their surroundings and on social media, and empowers them to act quickly with the assistance of trained and caring adults.

In order to keep the channels of communications open and clear, we want to inform our families about the required training that is scheduled for the week of February 4, 2019. Students in grades 5-12 will be trained on how to report concerns to a trusted adult or use the anonymous reporting system. Our goal is to provide families with an opportunity to preview the content prior to the training. Copies of the S2SS brochure and training video are listed below for your review.

The S2SS program is provided by Sandy Hook Promise (SHP), a nationwide non-profit organization dedicated to keeping our students safe. SHP’s programs are used in all 50 states, with 10,000+ schools and over 5.5 million students and adults trained. They have the track record, reputation, and knowledge to work effectively with kids, parents, and teachers to improve school safety and culture. They also have the funding to provide and sustain a research-based and age-appropriate program at NO COST to school districts across the state.

We anticipate that S2SS will help stop school shootings, suicides, and gun threats; help identify bullying and cyber bullying; and help mitigate cutting, drug use, racial conflicts, and other acts of violence and victimization.

Sincerely,

Dr. Edward J Zelich

Superintendent, Charleroi Area School District
