OK2SAY Hotline Up and Running
OK2SAY, a new hotline and student safety initiative available to Michigan students beginning in the 2014-2015 academic year, launched on Tuesday, Sept. 2.
OK2SAY enables students to confidentially report potential harm or criminal activities aimed at students, teachers, staff or other school employees. The program will operate as an early warning system in our schools to thwart tragedies before they occur. Created as a result of the Student Safety Act (183 PA 2013), OK2SAY's focus is on early intervention and prevention.
Students, teachers, parents, school workers, friends and neighbors can all submit tips, if they are aware of a threat in school. Tips can be submitted though the following ways:
Call: 8.555.OK2SAY (855.565.2729)

OK2SAY Mobile App: Available for download in app stores for iPhone and Android.
