Calloway County Schools Announces 'STOP! Tipline'

S.T.O.P-Tipline-LogoCALLOWAY COUNTY, Ky. (7/24/14) — In an effort to use every available resource to maintain a safe learning environment, Calloway County Schools announces the implementation of the 'Safety Tipline Online Prevention' or STOP! Tipline.

The STOP! Tipline is designed for use as an "online" reporting/prevention tool which is provided free to the district by the Kentucky Center for School Safety.

If students, parents or community members know of an unsafe situation in school (bullying, weapons, drugs or alcohol, etc.), they can pass on that information to school personnel by using this anonymous online format.

“Our hope is that, students who may be reluctant to make a face-to-face report of bullying or some other safety issue may be encouraged to share this information when offered an ‘online’ option," says Calloway County Superintendent of Schools Steve Hoskins. “By giving students a way to report concerns anonymously using their tablets, computers or smart phones, we can improve communications and then take the necessary steps to address any problems before they escalate."

The process for using the tip line involves locating and clicking the STOP Tipline logo on the Calloway County Schools District homepage http://calloway.kyschools.us/ or any Calloway School homepage. Starting immediately, students or any community members can report bullying, cyber-bullying, violence, risky behavior or other safety concerns to school personnel by using an online form which does not require identification of the person making the report. Tips can be left or students may choose to have someone contact them. More information can be found about the tip line at www.kycss.org/stop/about.php.

“This tip line is the latest tool in our kit to help protect our students, faculty, and staff. Our Comprehensive Safe School Plan is always being updated and we are excited to add this new resource,” says Steve Hoskins.
