What is a good tip?
- include location of incident(s)
- date and approximate time of incident

Gaggle Safety Tip Line Information
Saratoga Union School District is committed to using the most effective measures to ensure the safety of our students and schools. Toward that goal, the district has implemented a communication tool which provides a simple way for students to alert us to threats or possible incidents of self-harm, harm to others, or harm to school facilities.
The Gaggle SpeakUp Safety Tip Line is easy for students to use. Concerns such as bullying, peers or self in crisis, and other unsafe conditions can be reported quickly and anonymously by text, and/or voicemail sent to (408) 359-7601 or email to email@example.com.
Trained Gaggle safety representatives monitor SpeakUp tips 24 hours every day, and are poised to send an email regarding non-life-threatening situations to designated school or district staff. They will also call school officials in emergency situations and may contact local law enforcement when appropriate. District staff will then follow up with parents and students as needed.
In addition, the district uses the online e-safety tool GoGuardian. GoGuardian allows teachers and administrators to monitor students’ school online activity, including search queries and Google Drive (all students) as well as middle schoolers’ district Gmail. This monitoring occurs during the instructional day, and only when students are logged in to their SCHOOL/SUSD Google accounts.
Given our ever-changing and complex world, we believe these tools provide another safety net for our students.
