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 annually partners with professor Renea Nichols from the Bellisario College of Communications at Penn State that sponsors a free summer digital storytelling workshop for students who work on communication and public relations projects that help them connect with the community.
Bellefonte Area School District believes it is its responsibility to provide a safe and nondiscriminatory environment for all students. We also believe it is our responsibility to provide information and resources to broaden the knowledge and deepen the understanding of issues that affect our students and our community.
