New SafeOregon Tip Line

posted Mar 30, 2017, 1:09 PM by Troy Stoops   [ updated Mar 30, 2017, 1:30 PM ]
Safety of all students in Mt. Angel Schools is a top priority.  Each of our schools perform monthly drills to prepare for evacuating buildings and securing buildings for student and staff safety.  The new "SafeOregon Tip Line" is a new reporting system developed by Oregon State Police and the Oregon Schools Safety Council.  This Tip Line is a system that students can use to report school safety threats. SafeOregon gives your child another path for communicating with school administration when school safety incidents occur. Students can access SafeOregon through the web form on the SafeOregon web site, or by text, email, live call and mobile app.  All Mt. Angel School websites have a direct reporting link at the top of the front page.

SafeOregon can be accessed from the privacy of a phone, home computer or other Internet equipped device, eliminating the possibility of being identified by another student and thus, decreasing the likelihood that a school safety threat would go unreported. Specially trained technicians field incoming tips 24 hours- a-day, 365 days-a-year for all public schools Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. The Oregon State Police provides this service through a contracted vendor.  In most instances, the School will have the responsibilities to complete an after action note. This may require minimal reporting to detail action taken, how it was handled, whether it was resolved or whether it requires ongoing attention. The technicians are trained and experienced in recognizing mental illness, emotional disturbances and managing crisis situations. If necessary, a tip may be transferred to a local community mental health services provider in the same manner. 
This Tip Line has been discussed with staff and students in each of our schools.  Please take time to discuss and review the reporting system with your child.  If you have any questions or concerns you can contact SafeOregon directly by following link on the websites or contact your school counselor directly.
