Fulton School District Announces Bullying Tipline
By West Kentucky Star Staff
FULTON, KY - As part of an effort to stop bullying and other risky behavior, Fulton Independent Schools has announced the implementation of a “Safety Tipline Online Prevention”, or STOP! Tipline.   

According to a press release, the STOP! Tipline is designed for use as an "online" reporting/prevention tool which is provided free by the Kentucky Center for School Safety. If students, parents or community members learn about an unsafe situation in school (bullying, weapons, drugs or alcohol, etc.), they can anonymously pass on that information to school personnel by using this basic email format.

“Our hope is that, students who fear face-to-face reporting of bullying or other safety issues may be less reluctant to share this vital information when offered an “online” option,” says Superintendent DeAnna Miller. “By giving students the ability to report concerns over their tablets, computers or mobile phones, we can reach more students and address problems before they escalate."

The process for using the tip line involves locating the STOP Tipline logo on the school’s website.  Immediately, students or community members can anonymously report bullying, cyber-bullying, violence, risky behavior or other safety concerns to school personnel by using a basic email format. Tips can be left anonymously or students may choose to have someone contact them. More information can be found about the tip line at www.kycss.org/stop/about.php 

The announcement of the STOP! Tipline aligns with the Kentucky Safe Schools Week theme this year “Get Involved, Get It Solved, STOP THE BULLYING!” Everyone can make a personal commitment to get involved and by using the tip line any student can get involved and without fear of retaliation. www.kysafeschools.org/ssw.php
