Safe2Say Something Program

Radnor PD

Safe2Say

Dear Radnor Community,
 
As a school system and township, our constant priority is the safety and security of Radnor students and children. Within the district, various internal processes are in place to allow us to effectively and confidently address and resolve safety concerns. The district and the Radnor Police Department also benefit from a strong, collaborative and communicative relationship. Now, as a result of the Pennsylvania General Assembly passing Act 44 in 2018, we will soon have another way for the police and district staff members to learn about and respond to potentially critical situations.
 
Among other safety measures, Act 44 mandated the establishment and use of the “Safe2Say Something” (S2SS) Anonymous Reporting System by every Pennsylvania school entity starting January 14, 2019. Per the S2SS website, “S2SS is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. The program teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals...from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to ‘say something’ before it is too late.” S2SS provides a way for individuals to anonymously report concerning information through a dedicated app, website, and 24/7 Crisis Center Hotline.
 
You can learn more about S2SS on the program’s website here
 
Certain RTSD staff members have been selected as the district’s core response team for tips submitted through the S2SS app, website and hotline. These staff members participated in required training in December 2018. Radnor Police officers have also attended training on the new system. In preparation for the launch of S2SS, district officials and police officers have met to review the system and coordinate its implementation.
 
Per the PA Attorney General’s Office, all teachers in grades 6-12 are also required to be trained in S2SS. Although it is not required, the district will also provide training to 6th-12th grade students and is working on a schedule to complete these trainings. The district also invites district parents to the Friday, February 8 meeting of the Radnor High School Alliance for Safe Kids (ASK) at 9 a.m. at RHS.

Again, we are confident in the effectiveness of the current processes in place both within the district and when working with the Radnor Police. We will continue to employ these procedures to address and resolve student safety and security concerns. We value the relationship the district and the police have built and we will work closely together as we have in the past. S2SS is simply another layer of security added to our existing protocols. To that end, we must stress that a person’s first step in the case of any potentially life-threatening or emergency situation should always be calling 911.
 
Thank you.
 
Sincerely,
 
Kenneth E. Batchelor
Superintendent
Radnor Township School District
