Students will learn how to spot the signs of at-risk behaviors, especially in social media, and take action by submitting a tip anonymously
CFCI is excited to announce our partnership with Sandy Hook Promise (SHP), a leading violence prevention organization, to roll out its Say Something Anonymous Reporting System to its students districtwide.
The Say Something Anonymous Reporting System allows students to submit secure and anonymous safety concerns to help identify and intervene upon at-risk individuals BEFORE they hurt themselves or others. Concerned students simply submit a tip using the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System app, website, or by calling a dedicated 24/7 crisis center. SHP’s crisis center then triages the tip and communicates it back to the identified school district contacts and, as needed, to law enforcement.
The Say Something Anonymous Reporting System is managed and maintained by a national digital leader in the school safety space with 20+ years of experience and a nationally accredited, 24/7 Crisis Center staffed by trained professional Helpline Counselors. SHP provides overall management and training of the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System to school districts’ teachers, administrators, and students. SHP pays for 100% of the costs, through donations, grants, and other gifts, to train and sustain the program in local districts.
About Sandy Hook Promise: Sandy Hook Promise (SHP) is a national, nonprofit organization based in Newtown, Connecticut. We are led by several family members whose loved ones were killed in the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012, that claimed the lives of 20 first-graders and 6 educators. SHP is focused on preventing gun violence (and other forms of violence and victimization) BEFORE it happens by educating and mobilizing youth and adults on mental health and wellness programs that identify, intervene and help at-risk individuals. SHP is a moderate, above-the-politics organization that supports sensible non-policy and policy solutions that protect children and prevent gun violence. Our intent is to honor all victims of gun violence by turning our tragedy into a moment of transformation.
The CFCI’s platform will go live following the training of our 6-8 students the week of December 2-6. More information will be shared as those details are finalized!
