Kentucky schools utilize technology in new anti-bullying measure


Web Editor - Amanda Roberts

Kentucky schools are taking to the web as another measure to help prevent against bullying. 

Beginning November 18th, Kentucky Center for School Safety will be providing a "free" email tipline to all Kentucky schools.

As bullying is still a major school safety issue in Kentucky schools, the S.T.O.P. Tipline, or the Safety Tipline, Online Prevention Tipline is available for students, parents, or community members to report an unsafe situation.

Unsafe situations can include bullying, weapons, drugs, or alcohol.

The tips will be forwarded to school personnel anonymously.

The S.T.O.P. Tipline can be located at the top of their respective school's website.

Those who choose to utilize S.T.O.P. Tipline have the option to remain anonymous or have an authority figure contact them. 

Representatives from all schools involved in the tipline have met with KCSS staff to help refine the tip line.

If successful, S.T.O.P. Tipline will be available to all Kentucky school districts starting early February.

The following school districts are those currently participating in the S.T.O.P. Tipline program:

  • Crittenden County 
  • Fulton Independent 
  • Graves County 
  • Henderson County 
  • Hopkins County 
  • Livingston County 
  • Mayfield Independent
