Report Safety Concerns

Help us keep our school and district communities safe

The Tuscaloosa County School System and school safety technology provider Gaggle have partnered to provide a way for students to confidentially report threats of violence, bullying, peers in crisis, and other imminent threats through the SpeakUp for Safety tip line.

Submit a Report (Confidential)

Students can contact the SpeakUp tip line through email, phone call, or text message. The Gaggle SpeakUp for Safety tip line integrates directly with Office 365, to which TCSS students already have access. Students will see the SpeakUp for Safety address whenever they start to compose an email. SpeakUp for Safety’s instant email replies include a phone number that students can use for text messages or phone calls. 

Trained Gaggle safety representatives evaluate information that comes into the tip line 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Gaggle representatives send an email regarding non-life-threatening items to designated school or district staff members. In severe situations, district-appointed contacts are notified immediately. In the most imminent cases, Gaggle will contact law enforcement to intervene if they are unable to notify a district-appointed contact.

If you have questions about the SpeakUp for Safety tip line, please contact your school administrator.
