New System for Reporting School Safety Concerns

Release Date: 

The Pendleton School District has a new system, called SafeOregon, for reporting school safety threats. SafeOregon is a program created for Oregon students, parents, school staff, and community members to report and respond to student safety threats. Tips can be submitted through email, phone call or text, mobile app or the web portal. Tips are confidential and can be made anonymously.

Tips may include bullying, violence, threat of violence, harassment, intimidation, cyber bullying, self-harm, etc.

When a tip is reported, it is handled by specially trained technicians who are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for all of Oregon’s public schools Pre-Kindergarten through 12th Grade. The Oregon State Police provides this service through a contracted vendor.

SafeOregon is made possible through Oregon HB 4075 as a result of recommendations from the Oregon Task Force on School Safety.

The Pendleton School District is committed to student safety and realizes that when students feel safe in their schools, learning is more effective.

We encourage you to find out more about SafeOregon by visiting safeoregon.com.
