    Default Safe2say something app mandated by PA state legislature for all schools in PA

    Well I just learned something disturbing. The state passed legislation making it mandatory for all schools to have an app for reporting school community safety threats.

    Why wouldn't you just call the police? Second why leave it to school officials to involve the police? Why have the app in the first place? More Sandy Hook bullshit!

    Our school officials are becoming way to powerful. The police should assess the threat not an added layer of school officials.

    So is my daughter deemed a threat when I target shoot with her or when I post a bunting pic of her or one is seen of her? Does the app collect information?

    At least it was opposed at a warminster meeting.



    From Warminster Live Face book page

    The agenda for tonight's Centennial School Board meeting includes consideration of a strongly worded resolution opposing the implementation of the statewide Safe2Say Something program and requesting a delay of the Jan. 14 deadline to activate.


    The program was adopted by the state legislature last year as part of Act 44 of 2018 and requires all public, private, charter, cyber charters and vo-tech schools to participate in an anonymous, threat-reporting system. Parents, teachers and students will be able to use an app to anonymously report suspected threats to the school community. The tip goes to the PA attorney general's office for triage. It is then sent to a three-to-five member team created by the school district, and, if necessary, the police department. It is then up to the district team to decide the next course of action.


    The school board's resolution says it "opposes the reckless implementation of the program," saying the state has not provided adequate resources or training that will help the district investigate anonymous tips. Training sessions were organized by the attorney general's office in December, but I don't know how detailed the sessions were. The app was developed by Sandy Hook Promise, a nonprofit formed by the mother of child killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre.


    The resolution also expresses concern about possible abuses of the anonymous app and violations of students' personal privacy. The attorney general's Crisis Center only requires a description of the concerning activity, a name and address/location of the suspected person before forwarding the information to the district team. If all of the information is provided by the anonymous tip, it can be turned around in 1 to 3 minutes.

    Can the threat of poor education be reported via this app?

    What qualifications, do random school district employees have, that qualifies them to do threat assessments?

    Seems like some previous regime encouraged anonymous reporting of neighbors by a vast network of spies . . . hey, maybe they could encourage children to report what their parents say in the privacy of their homes, in case there's any disloyal talk or anyone disrespects the Fuhrer with counter-revolutionary words . . .

    Every week, the Democrats do something new to bring about their totalitarian dream of the government controlling all resources and knowing everything that happens.

    Another thing that bit me was data.

    One app across schools depending on catalogue of data could skew firearm issues and be used as a false foundation for more control.

    Sometimes you just want to sit back and stay silent. Let things happen and fall apart.

    Perhaps students could report teachers who preach against the constitution in their classes.

    Go to around 4:20 for the part where Officer Stadanko talks about rewards for turning in drug pushers.
