what is the s t o p tipline
What is the S.T.O.P.! Tipline
  • History…
    • In the past, the “Shout Out Box” or “Bully Box” has been a part of the Anti-Bullying/Violence Prevention campaign in many schools.
    • These boxes are located around school and “anonymously” students or staff can leave a tip or note about bullies or violence in or around school.
    • They are very successful and should be continued to be used as we build our comprehensive Anti-Bullying/Violence Prevention Programs across Kentucky.
  • As Technology Progresses…
    • As an addition to the “Shout Out Box” and with the advancement of technology, we are proposing the “Safety Tipline, Online Prevention” be an added addition to the comprehensive anti-bullying/violence prevention programs in Kentucky Schools.
    • The “Safety Tipline, Online Prevention” is an online reporting program that works like a “virtual” or online tip box!
    • Side bar…Our students use their tech devices to communicate, we need to give them this avenue to leave tips and communicate with us.

S.T.O.P. Tipline

Discussion and Considerations

For Implementation

considerations before implementation of the stop tipline
“Considerations Before Implementation”of the STOP Tipline
  • Five Areas to Cover
    • Email/Reported Tips
    • Timely Manner
    • Documentation
    • Internal Roll Out (Get Buy In)
    • Media Roll Out
email reported tips
Email/Reported Tips

1. Even before the partnership can be formed with KCSS and your school can receive the STOP Tipline, your school district needs to decide who in the school system should receive the tip (in email form) initially? (Tip is referring to an email with the reported information from a student or others.) Below are some suggestions and remember a minimum of three deep is suggested (redundancy.)

    • DPP
    • Safe school coordinator
    • School Resource Officer
    • Principal (in small districts)

Additional note:

  • Test emails (reports) should be conducted to make sure emails are being received periodically.

2. Where does tip go next?

  • If principals are not in the initial distribution list, then they would be the logical next contact for the tip. A suggestion would be to text the principal that a tip has been received and is being sent to their email.
  • From the principal, the decision is made who should take action or be aware of this information in the tip. This could be the SAMs, guidance counselor , assistance principal, etc. (Distribution to those who can/should take action is required.)

3. Who houses and files paper copies if any?

  • Documentation can be done in Infinite Campus?
  • Original reporting email can be used to reply or forward with action taken (to a designated person).
  • A sample routing sheet is available

4. Who houses and files paper copy of tip?

  • A couple of options are the DPP or the Principal.
  • In the building the Principal may give this job to an assistant principal or a guidance counselor.
timely manner
Timely Manner
  • These three levels are on the form for the person reporting a tip to check…
    • Level 1 - alert
    • Level 2 – contact me
    • Level 3 – be aware
  • Once the tip is received by the designed person, they will determine the action to be taken and in what time frame…suggestion is within three days. Better option would be within 24 hours or acknowledge receipt at all levels within 24 hours.
  • Best ‘consideration’ is that someone at the school level indicates what response was taken. That response can be matched to case number or form number. A response form is included in packet of materials as an option for recording response.
  • It is necessary for some system of documentation to be set up in-district.
  • If a level is not checked, the district needs to decide on the nature of the report and response needed.
  • Remember: those who report (students) may be waiting to see a response (if report was specific and warrants attention).
  • Districts must decide whether to save email tip forms on server or paper
  • If paper (see notebook, which is provided) color coding and level with routing slip (provided)…
  • Each district will have a unique system of documentation, but the common thread will be… there must be documentation of the actions taken in a timely matter to insure the effectiveness of this school safety tool.

sample of agreement

  • The success of this STOP Tipline is like so many other programs or projects. It takes time and attention. The concept behind this program sounds solid, allowing students, parents or community members to report bullying, violence or any unsafe situation at school online at anytime. The management of the sensitive information and the immediacy of it may be exhausting at times. Having a web-based conduit for school safety information and stopping some safety concerns before they escalate hopefully is worth the extra time and effort. We at KCSS, applaud you for what you do everyday to keep schools safe.
