In June 2018, Gov. Tom Wolf signed school safety legislation as part of a response spurred by the Parkland High School in Florida's horrific shooting in February 2018 that killed 17 people. Act 44 mandates the establishment and use of the "Safe2Say Something" (S2SS) Anonymous Reporting System by every Pennsylvania school entity by January 14, 2019. 

S2SS is a life-saving and life-changing school safety program that teaches students, educators and administrators how (1) to recognize the signs and signals of individuals who may be at risk of hurting themselves or others; and (2) to anonymously report this information through the S2SS app, website or 24/7 Crisis Center Hotline.

 We encourage you to review this information and discuss it with other educational leaders in your school district.
