Safe2Say Something Anonymous Reporting System is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. The program teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to “say something” before it is too late.
The tip line is operated and monitored 24/7 by the Office of the Attorney General, where tips are reviewed, classified, and forwarded to the appropriate school district. Anyone may provide tips about potential risks to young people through a phone call — 1-844-723-2729, website (www.safe2saypa.org) or phone app.
The Quakertown Community School District has met all requirements established in Safe2Say, a key component in the Pennsylvania General Assembly’s Act 44 of 2018. A five-person district team has been established and trained on the program. The team includes Assistant Superintendent Nancianne Edwards, the district’s Safety Coordinator; Superintendent Dr. Bill Harner; Dr. Lisa Hoffman, Assistant Superintendent for the Office of Teaching and Learning; Janet Pelone, Director of Pupil Services; and high school Principal Dr. David Finnerty. Ms. Edwards has trained each of the district’s principals, who have given presentations to faculty and staff at each school.
