LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dale Zorn announced on Wednesday that he is offering parents an online Back-to-School report that includes information on school funding, school safety and more.
“As Michigan children begin another school year, it is important that they are able to learn the tools necessary to seize new opportunities and meet any challenges and that they feel safe — and are safe — at school,” said Zorn, R-Ida. “Education remains a top priority, and we once again have increased school funding to record levels to help prepare students for success and keep them safe.
“In addition to information on those steps, the back-to-school report features materials on Michigan’s OK2SAY confidential tip line — including a card-sized cut-out that details how students, parents and educators can help prevent school tragedies.”
OK2SAY is a confidential reporting system designed to allow Michigan students, parents, school employees, health officials and law enforcement officers to share and respond to safety threats.
Students can report tips by calling 1-8-555-OK-2-SAY (65-2-729), texting a message to 652729, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or filling out a form at www.mi.gov/ok2say. An app is also available in the app stores for iPhone and Android devices.
