Having an open channel where the community can contribute to analyzing concerning behaviors or potential threats is an invaluable asset to ensuring safety at school. The focus of a school-wide electronic tip line would be on early intervention and prevention through awareness and communication. With the Kid.io Tip Line, you can solve a problem before it becomes one.
Kid.io Tip Line extends the features of the safety platform schools know and love. If repeated incidents or threats of dangerous activity are happening off-campus or on social media, school personnel may be caught off guard when it escalates to school grounds. Our platform brings this to the attention of schools who, working in close coordination with law enforcement agencies, can resolve the situation.
Bullying, harassment, fights, drug use, shootings, and other behavior that threatens or harms students do not just manifest overnight. The first to hear about these things are usually not the administration; it’s the students. So we must have an open forum to collect warnings posted online or alarming behavior noted by parents, neighbors, or the students themselves.
Imagine that a student at your school has been the target of a bully — it’s an unpleasant situation to think about, but a more difficult situation to be in. An involved student or bystander may not know who to trust or how to stand up to the bully. By giving users the option to remain anonymous, our Tip Line is essential to those who might otherwise be afraid to come forward. Since our Tip Line is a free app-based product, anyone can access it from their smartphone or through a web browser.
A feeling of safety isn’t something that just happens. It has to be built thoughtfully, by people who are invested in our kids’ wellbeing and their educational spaces. In collaboration with students, parents, school, and safety officials, we can create a safe environment surrounding our schools.
