What is Safe2Say Something?

Safe2Say Something 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, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to “say something” BEFORE it is too late. With Safe2Say Something, it’s easy and confidential to report safety concerns to help prevent violence and tragedies.

Here’s how it works:

  • Submit an anonymous tip report through the Safe2SaySomething system
  • Crisis center reviews, assesses and processes all submissions
  • Crisis center sends all submissions to school administration and/or law enforcement for intervention
  • If needed, crisis center may contact tipster anonymously through the app

Three ways to submit an anonymous tip

Please review the RCCS Safe2Say Policy for more information about this program’s use in our school.

Student Assistance Program (SAP)

Student Assistance Program (SAP)

The Pennsylvania Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a systematic team process used to mobilize school resources to remove barriers to learning. SAP is designed to assist in identifying issues including alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, and mental health issues which pose a barrier to a student’s success. The primary goal of the Student Assistance Program is to help students overcome these barriers so that they may achieve, advance, and remain in school.

Each school building at RCCS has confidential SAP team composed of specialty trained teachers, school counselors, school administrators, and other school employees, who work to provide services to help students overcome barriers to learning.

Anyone can refer a student to SAP when they are concerned about someone’s behavior -- any school staff, a student’s friend, a family member or community member. The students themselves can even go directly to the SAP team to ask for help. The SAP team contacts the parent for permission to proceed with the SAP process.

Threat Assessment Team

Act 18 of 2019 requires the establishment of threat assessment teams for all school entities in Pennsylvania.

Threat assessment is a systematic process designed to:

  • Identify individual(s)/situation(s) where behavior causes concern for violence and capacity to carry out a threat, (i.e., determine whether a student poses a threat for harm or violence to themselves or others, not just whether the student has made a threat)
  • Gather the most relevant information about the student’s communications and behaviors, negative or stressful events the student has experienced, and resources the student possesses to overcome those setbacks and challenges
  • Collect and share this relevant information in a lawful and ethical manner, including complying with relevant federal and state privacy laws
  • Assess the individual(s)/situation(s) in context based on the totality of information available; and
  • Identify strategies to prevent violence and mitigate impact of harm to the student, school, and/or community.
