Tulsa Public Schools, as an outgrowth of its anti-bullying efforts, is launching a new online tool to encourage students, teachers, staff and others in the Tulsa community to confidentially report bullying or other potentially harmful incidents.
The district plans to go “live” with TIPS (Threat Assessment, Incident Management and Prevention Services) in January 2012, with a link from the TPS website at www.tulsaschools.org. TIPS also allows for the anonymous reporting of weapons possession, drug/alcohol use, harassment or intimidation, school vandalism, physical assault, threats of violence, suicide risk, abuse or neglect and other incidents. Users select from drop-down menus that allow them to identify the school and to select from the various types of incidents, date/time, identities of the person or persons being reported, and any victims or potential victims, along with a description.
