Last Updated: 8/18/2021 1:22 PM

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Crestwood Local Schools is fully committed to the safety and well-being of our students and school community. That’s why we’ve taken an important step to enhance personal safety and provide a positive learning environment for all students.

Crestwood Local Schools use the Stay Safe. Speak Up! Student Safety Reporting System (powered by PublicSchoolWORKS). Stay Safe. Speak Up! is a comprehensive reporting tool that allows students, parents, and staff to submit safety concerns to school officials. 

Concerns can be submitted in three ways:

  1. Mobile App. Download the Stay Safe. Speak Up! mobile app and enter our unique District Code to submit reports directly from your smartphone. District Code: devl

  1. Phone. Call 1-866-547-8362 to leave a voice message or speak with a trained, live attendant. Attendants can initiate contact with various national crisis hotlines if a student needs help dealing with a personal emergency.

  2. Online. Go to https://www.crestwoodschools.org/ and click on the Stay Safe. Speak Up! button to access the online form from a desktop computer or laptop.

You and your child can easily report tips on bullying, harassment, drugs, weapons, thoughts of suicide, or any other concern which may jeopardize the safety of students, employees, or school property. 

Every report received about our district is immediately logged into our system and our administration is notified so we can investigate and take appropriate action. And, tips can be submitted anonymously. 

We will make every effort to handle and respond to every charge and complaint filed by students, parents, and employees in a fair, thorough, and just manner. And, every effort will be made to protect the due process rights of all victims and alleged perpetrators.

We’re confident that Stay Safe. Speak Up! will enhance communication, ensure a swifter response to school safety concerns, and make our district a safer place to work and learn.
