The Cobb County School District is dedicated to a comprehensive school safety effort, and the safety of students and staff is our top priority. That’s why the Cobb County School District has taken another step to safeguard Cobb schools and community. Students, staff members, and parents are now able to report safety concerns from anywhere, at any time, via the new SafeSchools Alert tip line.
Each member of our school family can easily report tips, anonymously if desired, on bullying, harassment, drugs, vandalism, threats of violence, or other safety issues of concern.
Every tip submitted through the SafeSchools Alert will be immediately logged and routed to the appropriate administrator to investigate and take appropriate action.
Students, staff members, and parents can submit a tip to the SafeSchools Alert via the web, phone, email, or text. When submitting a tip, include the Cobb County School District identification code 1760 in order to designate the tip as related to Cobb Schools.
The SafeSchools Alert tip line does not replace 911. For emergencies, please dial 911.
“We are seeking information that can allow the school to better address the school climate issues that cause students anxiety or fear and are not being addressed because people are afraid to share the information,” explained Cobb County School District Police Officer Phil Bradford. “We are trying to become more aware of what is going on. We are asking for information from all quarters of the school so we can become preventive, and we can be more proactive.”
If you have information about a threat to our safety, do your part and report! And remember, you can remain anonymous.
The Tip Line will be going live in phases:
- January 22nd for our High Schools
- January 28th for our Middle Schools
- February 4th for our Elementary Schools
