Scottsbluff Public Schools Utilizing TIPS to Prevent Alarming Trends in School Safety

Scottsbluff Public Schools has launched TIPS, an online suite of tools from Awareity, to improve school safety and empower students, teachers, staff and the community to anonymously report suspicious or potentially harmful incidents.

PRLog - March 14, 2012 - LINCOLN, Neb. -- Taking school safety to the next level, Scottsbluff Public Schools has launched an online suite of tools to empower students, teachers, staff and others in the community to confidentially or anonymously report suspicious or potentially harmful incidents.  

TIPS (Threat Assessment, Incident Management and Prevention Services), an award-winning platform from Awareity, allows for the anonymous reporting of bullying, weapons possession, drug/alcohol use, harassment or intimidation, school vandalism, physical assault, threats of violence, suicide risk, abuse or neglect and other incidents.

Scottsbluff Public Schools launched TIPS in December 2011 with a TIPS Report Incident button on the Scottsbluff Public Schools website at www.sbps.net for anyone in the community to access. The TIPS button will allow students, teachers, parents, counselors, bus drivers and others to anonymously or non-anonymously report incidents online.  Reports can also be made confidentially by phone at 308-633-9999.

It is critical for schools to proactively identify at-risk individuals and improve investigations, intervention and prevention, while documenting all actions taken.  TIPS empowers SPS’s safety team to securely and confidentially share information, coordinate the team’s ongoing safety efforts and meet state and federal OCR mandates.  

“TIPS is a comprehensive suite of tools to help SPS improve school safety and provide our students, parents and faculty with peace of mind,” said Superintendent Rick Myles.  “TIPS automatically notifies our safety team members when an incident is reported, so they can investigate, intervene and prevent incidents and ensure a safe learning environment for everyone.”  

Scottsbluff Public Schools immediately saw success with the TIPS platform during the first week of implementation, two incident reports were submitted by students regarding safety related issues, allowing school safety team members to proactively investigate and respond.
