• Dallas ISD to launch Say Something Anonymous Reporting System in April

    Everyone deserves to feel safe and supported while they are on our campuses every day. The safety and well-being of our students and staff is our top priority -- and requires a proactive approach to violence prevention.

    That is why we are happy to introduce the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System to Dallas ISD. We will be training our students on when and how to use this system starting in April.

    The Say Something Anonymous Reporting System is a research-based violence prevention program offered by Sandy Hook Promise, a national nonprofit organization. It teaches the warning signs of potential violence or self-harm and provides students and staff with secure ways to share safety concerns through a mobile app, website, or phone call.

    Simply put, this program will further enhance the student protections we already have in place.

    More than 5,000 schools nationwide have launched this program to date. Administrators and school staff report that their students already feel safer.

    We have included information about what the app is, how students can use it, and why we are adopting it in our schools below.
