TIPS Prevention Program

TIPS (Threat Assessment, Incident Management and Prevention Services) is a set of web-based tools designed to empower students, parents, teachers and staff to report bullying or other safety concerns confidentially. Once reports are made, TIPS provides a central and secure system for school personnel to investigate the concern and objectively assess the situation. Staff can then track and document actions taken, and monitor the students involved.
