Cardington-Lincoln Local Schools Partners with PublicSchoolWORKS to Help Students and Families Report Bullying and Student Safety Concerns

Partnership helps students and families speak up for school safety

Cardington, OH (September 24, 2021) — As part of its continued commitment to preventing bullying and promoting a safe school environment, The Cardington-Lincoln Local School District has partnered with PublicSchoolWORKS, the leading provider of K-12 school safety and compliance programs, to introduce the “Stay Safe. Speak Up!” safety reporting mobile app. The app is designed to empower students, families and school staff to prevent bullying and speak up about school safety concerns, including bullying, discrimination, thoughts of suicide, self-harm, and more.

The mobile app is part of the PublicSchoolWORKS Stay Safe. Speak Up! Student Safety Reporting System, an extension of the company’s comprehensive anti-bullying and school safety program. The program gives students, families, and staff multiple ways to report safety concerns 24/7, as well educational resources for staff, students and parents covering a variety of student bullying, safety and mental health crises, from depression and suicide to dating violence and gang awareness. 

When safety or bullying reports are submitted, key administrators are automatically notified via email – or phone in the case of an emergency – to investigate and resolve reports. All reports are stored in one centralized online location so Cardington-Lincoln Local Schools can document and investigate incidents and monitor safety trends. 

“At the very core of PublicSchoolWORKS is a deep-rooted commitment to the safety and well-being of students and staff,” said Steve Temming, President of PublicSchoolWORKS. “Essential to this commitment is the PublicSchoolWORKS’ Stay Safe. Speak Up! Student Safety Reporting System, which plays a vital role in allowing the school community to communicate any student safety concerns.”
