Illinois School Safety Newsletter

The Statewide Terrorism Intelligence Centre have printed an article in their January 2017 Illinois School Safety Newsletter about Safer Schools Together and our award winning PSSTWorld.
Free 1 Year Trial of an Award Winning Online Anonymous Student Reporting Tool
“Schools need to provide students an anonymous way to be able to report safety related and concerning information to the decision makers in our buildings. This is known to be best practice and arises consistently during inquiries into the tragic aftermaths of school shootings. It is known that students aren’t utilizing phone tip lines and they have told us that they won’t install a reporting app on their smartphones. This is the reason that Safer Schools Together created the first Online Anonymous Student Reporting Tool in North America– PSSTWorld, in 2004. Legislation is catching up, for example both California and Texas require school districts to have an anonymous student reporting tool. In California, PSSTWorld won the Golden Bell Award for being the best school safety initiative. We stand firmly behind the inherent value that this tool brings to a school community and Safer Schools Together is willing to offer any school district in Illinois a free year activation of PSSTWorld. It is easy to implement, requires no extra work, and beyond the first year the cost is marginal. You will also receive user manuals, guidelines for responding to tips, and promotional posters and videos. We invite you to let the tool prove its worth.
