SafeOregon brochures available for PPS community12/3/2018
Since September 2017, Portland Public Schools has been encouraging its community to utilize the SafeOregon tip line to report unsafe situations, whether they involve threats of violence, fights, drugs and alcohol, weapons, bullying, harassment, intimidation, or self-harm.
SafeOregon was funded by the Oregon Legislature as part of a statewide effort to improve school safety. The tip line provides a secure means for a person to anonymously report suspicious or imminently unsafe situations.
Anyone, from students to parents to community members, can access the system in a variety of ways, including:
- The “Report unsafe behavior” button found on every PPS school’s website
- The SafeOregon 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
To continue spreading the word about this resource, PPS would like to share links to a SafeOregon brochure in English as well as the district’s five supported languages below.
Please be sure to share this information with your friends and family – and remind your students: If you see or hear something, say something - immediately. Let’s work together to keep our community safe.
