Our school clients trust in TIPS to ensure the right information gets to the right people at the right time and this award acknowledges our continued dedication to school safety.”

Awareity’s TIPS service empowers students, parents, teachers, staff and others within a campus community to confidentially and anonymously report bullying or other potentially harmful student and or school safety concerns. TIPS empowers the school to customize as many different Incident Types as needed so students, parents, teachers and staff can anonymously report bullying, cyberbullying, weapons possession, drug/alcohol use, harassment or intimidation, school vandalism, physical assault, threats of violence, suicide risk, abuse or neglect and other alarming trends that emerge in schools as risks are continuously changing.

More than just an incident reporting tool, TIPS is a comprehensive suite of risk management tools ensuring all incident reports are tracked and documented and responded to in a proactive manner. With TIPS, district administrators can access the on‐demand incident reporting dashboard to see when reports were made, when team members received and acknowledged each incident report, and what steps were taken to investigate, intervene and follow up on the report. Team members collaborate through the secure TIPS platform to share ongoing findings, to help connect all the dots needed to ensure a safe and responsive approach. Compliance to policy is seen in real time, through time stamped log entries, and action notes reported by team members. The ability to upload mandated policy, training, updates to process or procedure etc. makes the TIPS Awareness Vault a gold mine for school districts trying to cut costs.

Because the TIPS platform automates what was once a labor‐intensive and expensive manual process of documentation, TIPS pays for itself and schools can be more efficient in their responses, more collaborative in investigations, and more accountable to students and their families. This 21st century risk management approach addresses prevention, legal liability, accountability, insurability, reputation management and many other mounting obligations.
