Kentucky Safe Schools Week

The Kentucky Center for School Safety announces Kentucky Safe Schools Week will be observed October 19-25, 2014.

 This year’s theme “LEAN On Me; Stop the Bullying!”   will focus on the culture/environment of the school and the interdependence of students and staff to make the culture safe, warm and welcoming.  Key to the “LEAN On Me” concept is straight from the song lyrics, “sometimes in our lives we all have pain and we all have sorrow” learning to depend on fellow classmates, trust the adults at school and to treat others well will support the subtitle of “STOP the Bullying.”

S.T.O.P.! Tipline

STOP Tipline

Kentucky Center for School Safety is proud to provide an email tipline to all Kentucky schools. The Safety Tipline, Online Prevention or S.T.O.P! Tipline is designed for use as an "online" reporting/prevention tool. If students, parents or community members know of an unsafe situation in school (bullying, weapons, drugs or alcohol, etc.), they can anonymously pass on that information to school personnel by using this basic email format.
