At some point, most students will confront dangerous or even illegal activity at school or in the community. If you do, we want you to have several avenues for speaking out. Talk to a parent, a teacher, or a school police officer about what you know. Or contact Students Speaking Out anonymously.
Why Speak Out?
Students play the most important role at your school in keeping your campus safe. Even though you are young, you can really make a difference.
Bullying, substance abuse, relationship violence, and gang activity thrive in environments where bystanders tolerate activities that they know are wrong. There are real and serious consequences that can result from these activities. Speaking Out can make a difference in one person's life or even your whole school.
Making a difference isn't always easy; it can be uncomfortable to speak out for what is right. That's why Students Speaking Out gives you a way to speak out anonymously and you may even receive a reward for your information.
Your voice is powerful, you can use it to make your school better for everyone.
On this website, we discuss some of the challenges you might encounter at school or in the community. We strongly encourage you to talk to your family and teachers about these issues. We have links to other websites that might have helpful information. Knowledge is power.
How it works?
If you have information about a crime, serious school violation, or dangerous activity at school you can call Students Speaking Out completely anonymously. We call this a tip. We will tell you to follow up with us in the future using a secret code.
Our tip lines are not tracked or traced, we won't know who you are.
When we receive a tip, we pass it on to the police officer responsible for your school. They will investigate the tip. If they are able to prove the tip, you will be eligible for a reward.
When you follow up, we will let you know if you are eligible for a reward. If you are, we will tell you how much you will get and how to get the money.
