LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Lynchburg City Schools (LCS) is using a special tip line that provides a way for students to confidentially report threats of violence, bullying, peers in crisis, and other imminent threats.
The tip line is called “SpeakUp for Safety”. Students can email, call, or text to email@example.com or (434) 300-2230.
The tip line is monitored at all times by trained Gaggle safety representatives. Gaggle is a safety management system that alerts administrators if any images, words, and/or videos that reference self harm, violence, threats or otherwise inappropriate content are accessed using an LCS-issued device.
The representative will send an email regarding non-life-threatening items to designated school or division staff members. In severe situations, division-appointed contacts are notified immediately. In the most imminent cases, Gaggle will contact law enforcement to intervene if they are unable to notify a division-appointed contact.
To find out more about the LCS Gaggle and SpeakUp for Safety implementation, contact the Department of Student Services at (434) 515-5049.
