SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS:

Kansas Bureau of Investigations Suspicious Activity Report (SAR)

The Safe and Secure Schools Unit with the Kansas State Department of Education is excited to announce the launch of a new reporting tool for school and community safety.  The Unit has been working in collaboration with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation to release the Suspicious Activity Report (SAR).  The SAR does not take the place of calling 911 in an immediate emergency. Rather, it is intended for students, staff, parents, and community members to report suspicious activity.  The KBI receives the report and reviews, analyzes, and acts on the information accordingly.  For tracking purposes, the applicant is given a receipt number but the report remains anonymous if the user wishes. The SAR can be accessed at https://www.kbi.ks.gov/sar

Student Conflict/Bullying Concerns:

A district anti-bullying task force was created to continually assess the district’s practices, policies, and procedures regarding bullying.  The task-force created a brochure about the methods used to address student conflict/bullying in Valley Center Schools. You can view this brochure here   

Should you have concerns regarding student conflict/bullying, please access the on-line reporting tool next to the appropriate school. An e-mail notification is sent to the building's principal immediately so he/she can address the situation.
