LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette today released the August OK2SAY tip numbers. OK2SAY received 168 tips in August.

Top categories include:

“In just four years, OK2SAY has received almost 15,000 tips,” said Schuette. “The program works and it’s saving lives. I encourage students, parents, and teachers to continue using this program and I commend my Consumer Protection team for their hard work and continued outreach.”

The Attorney General offers FREE Student Safety programming for K-12th grade students, parents, guardians, and community leaders. To date, more than two million Michigan students have attended a presentation.

Students in K-5th grade receive age-appropriate instruction from the Michigan Cyber Safety Initiative (CSI), a national award-winning program and feeder program for OK2SAY. Students in 6th-12th grade receive dynamic OK2SAY student safety programming.

Adults can learn about our programs and how to host them by attending our Community Seminar or Program Overview. Scheduling is fast and easy on the OK2SAY website.

So far, more than 250 presentations are scheduled in 34 counties for the 2018-2019 school year.  But it’s not too late: If your school is interested in hosting an OK2SAY/CSI presentation, sign up today on the OK2SAY website.
