HOMER, Neb. — This small Nebraska school district is leading the way for rural schools by launching TIPS, a Web-based incident management and prevention platform from Awareity, Inc. No matter how big or how small, all schools face similar challenges (student safety, bullying, student achievement, legal, compliance, accreditations, etc.), mounting obligations and budget limitations.

Awareity's TIPS is a secure and central risk management/prevention platform equipping all individuals with the right tools so they can do the right things and prevent harmful incidents. TIPS begins with anonymous (or non-anonymous) incident reporting of bullying, cyber bullying, weapons possession, drug/alcohol use, harassment or intimidation, school vandalism, physical assault, threats of violence, suicide risk, abuse or neglect and other concerning behaviors that can have a negative impact on the learning environment.

"TIPS will help our school become more aware of student safety incidents and concerning behaviors within the community. When a report comes in through TIPS, administration can immediately investigate the incident and take the necessary steps towards intervention and proactive responding. This new reporting system will help to create a safer and more secure environment for all students and staff at Homer Community Schools," said Leah Clark, school psychologist.
