Undoubtedly, we've received information via OK2SAY that we would not have received from any other vehicle. Since so many issues transpire outside of our walls and outside of school hours, it is critical that our students have a way to reach out and report critical information. OK2SAY provides that outlet and connects in real-time with school officials. As a result, we've been able to help individuals, connect them with help, and have been able to take a proactive and preventative approach with school safety issues."
Dr. Stu Cameron, Superintendent, Imlay City Schools
For the Rockford School Community, OK2SAY is another tool for us to utilize in our efforts to maintain a healthy and safe school environment for our community, and we truly appreciate the efforts of the program helping us achieve that."
Scott Beckman, District Director of Security, Rockford Public Schools
Our school has benefited from the information that we receive, not only to identify problems but also to discredit rumors too. It gives school officials much-needed time to possibly intervene before a situation escalates. It has been a valuable tool."
Jim Ellis, Asst. Principal, Romeo High School
The tipline has been invaluable as a way for concerned individuals to let us know about issues that may be endangering one or more students, and tipline staff communicates information to us promptly, allowing staff to follow up in a timely manner.
We have . . . gained valuable information through tips submitted."
