Connally Independent School District and Gaggle announce a partnership to keep students and schools safe by providing a simple way for students to report threats of violence, bullying, weapons brought to school, peers in crisis and other urgent situations.
The Gaggle SpeakUp Safety Tipline integrates directly with G Suite for Education from Google, which students already use on a daily basis. There’s no need for students to download a mobile app or remember a phone number. SpeakUp replies include a phone number that students can use for text messages or phone calls.
Trained Gaggle Safety Representatives evaluate SpeakUp tips 24/7/365 and send an email regarding non-life-threatening items to designated school or district staff. They will also call school officials in emergency situations and can even contact local law enforcement.
