KANSAS SCHOOL SAFETY HOTLINE
KANSAS SCHOOL SAFETY HOTLINE
The Kansas School Safety Hotline (1-877-626-8203) became operative August 1, 1999, for use by students, parents, and community members in anonymously reporting any impending school violence. As of August 1, 2017, 5,744 hotline calls were logged with 1,174 of them being referred to school districts and/or law enforcement agencies.
In the past, we have obtained from each school district and accredited nonpublic school, via an online application, a list of persons, in priority order, who could be contacted by the Kansas Highway Patrol dispatchers in reporting potential violence. Listed below is the website and instructions for amending the list of personnel for the 2017-18 school year. Please check all telephone numbers carefully and make appropriate changes.
You may change any of the names, priority order of persons, telephone numbers, etc., at any time it becomes necessary throughout the school year. This enables the Kansas Highway Patrol dispatchers to have the most up-to-date listing available at all times.
