Speak up for Safety
Wichita Falls ISD and Gaggle are working to keep students and schools safe by providing a simple way for students to easily and confidentially report threats of violence, bullying, peers in crisis, and other imminent threats via the SpeakUp for Safety tipline. Trained Gaggle safety representatives evaluate SpeakUp for Safety tips 24/7/365 and send an email regarding non-life-threatening items to designated school or district staff members. In severe situations, district-appointed contacts are notified immediately. In the most imminent cases, Gaggle will contact law enforcement to intervene if they are unable to notify a district-appointed contact. The Gaggle SpeakUp for Safety tipline integrates directly with G Suite for Education from Google, which students already have access to on a daily basis. There’s no need for students to download a mobile app or remember a phone number—the SpeakUp for Safety instant replies include a phone number that students can use for text messages or phone calls.
Since 1999, Gaggle has been the leader in helping K-12 districts manage student safety on school-provided technology. Using a robust combination of both artificial intelligence and trained safety experts, the safety solution proactively assists districts 24/7/365 in the prevention of student suicide, bullying, inappropriate behaviors, school violence, and other harmful situations. Most importantly, Gaggle continues to help hundreds of districts across all 50 states avoid tragedies and save lives, while also protecting their liability.
