OK2SAY

OK2SAY is a student safety program that helps Michigan schools prevent tragedies. The state Legislature established the program, which launched in 2014. OK2SAY encourages students to submit confidential tips on criminal activities or potential harm directed at students, school employees, and schools 24/7 to trained technicians regarding potential harm or threats. “Reaching students outside the classroom is an important component of the OK2SAY message,” said Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel. “We’re committed to reminding students that we want them to step up and speak up when they see or hear something – whether it’s a bully or a friend contemplating self-harm. It really is ‘OK2SAY.’” Pictured below a state representative explain the importance of the program as Bow scholars listen intently.
