SafeOregon was funded by the Oregon Legislature as part of a statewide effort to improve school safety. It provides a secure means for anyone to anonymously report suspicious or imminently unsafe situations that may occur either in person or online.
Examples of suspicious or imminently unsafe situations include: threats of violence/access to weapons, fights, substance use, bullying/harassment, discrimination, intimidation, suicidality, self-harm, bias/hate crimes, and hate speech that is intended to insult, offend, or intimidate based on the attributes of an individual or a group (including disability, gender, gender identity, race/ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation).
Anyone, from students to parents to community members, can access the system in a variety of ways:
The “Report unsafe behavior” button found on every PPS school’s website
A live call/text (844-472-3367)
An email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The mobile app that can be downloaded from your Smart Phone via iTunes or Google Play
Trained staff are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to respond.
Please be sure to share this information with your friends and family. Remind your students: If you see or hear something, say something – immediately.
Let’s work together to keep our community safe.
