Law in Michigan Soon to Give Students Ways to Anonymously Report School Threats

Students in Michigan will be able to report potential school violence through a confidential tip line beginning next year. 

The “OK-2-SAY” program creates a hotline accepting confidential tips by phone, email, or text.  It was patterned after an alert system in Colorado that was set up after the Columbine shootings.

The proposal, that was signed into law in the final days of the legislative session, will allow individuals to anonymously report threats against themselves, or other students, teachers or buildings in the K-12 system.

3 and a half million dollars has been allocated for operation costs for the next four years.  Proponents of the law say it will give students the outlet to make a report while remaining anonymous.  Many, they say, fear going to authorities out of retribution.
