Governor Tom Wolf signs into law ACT 44.
This act requires school districts across the state to complete several safety measures in an ongoing effort to keep our schools safe. I am happy to report that 90% of the requirements that ACT 44 addresses were already in effect here at City Charter High School.
One of the major initiatives of ACT 44 is to establish an anonymous reporting system that is linked to all of the schools in the state as well as the county 911 center. This new reporting system allows anyone to anonymously report incidents by using the Safe2Say Something PA app, the website: Safe2Saypa.org or by calling 1-8844-SAF2Say (723-2729). This reporting system will be active as of 1/14/2019.
Students are required to complete a 60 minute training course on what to look for and how to use the system. This course can be completed in 2 sessions.

Safe2Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. The program teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to “say something” BEFORE it is too late.
