The Safe2Tell solution was developed specifically to encourage and empower bystanders when they have a concern about their safety or the safety of others. Safe2Tell guarantees anonymity by Colorado state law.
Students use Safe2Tell to report: bullying, suicide concerns, depression, sexting, stealing, threats, cutting, abuse, dating and domestic violence, fights, drugs, alcohol, weapons, or other types of dangerous situations that threaten their safety or the safety of others for the purpose of prevention and interventions.
What Safe2Tell Can/Cannot Do For You:
- Safe2Tell is a way for students to report threats to their safety or the safety of someone else in a way that keeps them safe.
- Safe2Tell helps increase awareness when school staff and/or administrators may not be aware that a situation has or is occurring for the purpose of prevention, early intervention, education and awareness.
- If you choose to make a Safe2Tell report in order to advocate for your child’s safety, the report will be sent to the school directly unless you specifically request notification to the Superintendent’s office instead.
- Safe2Tell does not notify the Reporting Party of the report outcome. All outcome information is private and autonomous to Safe2Tell.
- 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 venue within your school district for escalating these concerns.
- Safe2Tell is not a resource for keeping a “record” of your school or child’s history.
What You Can Do to Advocate for Your Child:
- Attempt to keep lines of communication open with your child’s teacher, your school’s administrative staff and your Superintendent’s office.
- Always keep the best interests of the child at the forefront of the conversation.
- Please remember privacy laws protect EVERY student. No one is entitled to know the disciplinary outcome of another student.
- Ask your school/school district if there is a preferred protocol or resource staff dedicated to parents who need assistance advocating for their child.
