The Bellefonte Area School District has partnered with Safe School Helpline to provide a way for students, staff and community members to help prevent any threat of harm at our schools. Safe School Helpline is a confidential way for anyone to report information about situations that may impact safety at our schools.
Bellefonte Area School District launched the Safe2Say Something helpline through the state's Safe2Say Program. The initiative, mandated by state law known as Act 44, is an anonymous reporting system designed to help students and staff recognize warning signs of individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others.
Bellefonte Area School District offers cyber education for its students who may feel this form of alternative learning is a good fit for them. In a question and answer with Rebecca Leitzell, the district's cyber education coordinator, you may learn what the program entails.
