Support them by staying involved
Who determines the response
Safe2Tell relays report information from the person making the report to local partners. Schools and law enforcement have authority to determine how they respond to reports. Any questions on general Safe2Tell response policies or protocols should be directed to your local school and/or law enforcement agencies.
What teenagers want parents to know
- “As much as I fight it, make me talk about it! Don’t let me get away with it.”
- Adults CAN submit Safe2Tell reports on their own behalf and/or on behalf of their child. Like all Safe2Tell reports, yours will be anonymous.
- Safe2Tell reports are not included in a student’s academic record.
- Safe2Tell does not notify the Reporting Party of the report outcome. All outcome information is confidential.
- If you have previously reported the situation to your school staff and are not satisfied with the outcome, Safe2Tell is not able to enforce a different outcome. Please find the appropriate contact within your school or district for escalating these concerns.
