Safe Schools Reporting Toolhttp://oss.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/361Safe Schools Reporting Tool <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:0.5in;"><span style="font-family:"arial",sans-serif;color:black;">The SCDSB has developed a Safe Schools Reporting Tool, which is available on this website's home page, </span><a><span style="font-family:"arial",sans-serif;color:black;text-decoration:none;"></span></a><span style="font-family:"arial",sans-serif;color:black;"> as a Quick Access button.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:0.5in;"><span style="font-family:"arial",sans-serif;color:black;"></span><span style="font-size:12pt;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;color:black;"></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:0.5in;"><span style="font-family:"arial",sans-serif;color:black;">The Safe Schools Reporting Tool gives students, parents and community members a way to report an incident online – whether it be bullying, drug use, vandalism or otherwise. Students are still encouraged to speak with a trusted, caring adult at school or home about their concerns, but the online form provides another option to those individuals who may not feel comfortable speaking in person. </span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:0.5in;"><span style="font-family:"arial",sans-serif;color:black;">When an incident is reported, an email will automatically be generated and sent to the principal and vice-principal(s) of that school, and school staff will follow-up.  </span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:0.5in;"><span style="font-family:"arial",sans-serif;color:black;">Student safety and well-being is always our top priority. All members of our school community have the right to be safe and feel safe in our school community. This is one more tool at our disposal to achieve and maintain a positive school climate.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal"> </p><p class="MsoNormal"> </p> <span style="font-size:12pt;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;color:black;"><br> <br> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:0.5in;"><br><span style="font-size:12pt;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;color:black;"> </span></p>
