Speak Up, an anonymous reporting system, empowers Katy ISD students, parents, and community members to anonymously submit safety and well-being tips to help prevent school related incidents that could cause harm to others. Tips may include bullying, weapons, suicide or self-harm, illicit drug use, inappropriate relationships, violence, and other concerns for safety and well-being. In addition to submitting anonymous and secure tips, users can upload video and photo evidence. All tips are thoroughly investigated by campus personnel, police, and or/or a crisis management team. This anonymous reporting system is designed to provide a secure avenue of intervention for individuals at risk of inflecting harm on themselves or others.
