We are pleased to announce a new partnership between MASSP, MASC/MAHS and the OK2SAY program sponsored by the Office of the Michigan State Attorney General. Knowing MASSP is the premier education association, we are committed to seeing the continued effective use of the life saving OK2SAY program in schools all across the state of Michigan.
Since its inception in 2014, OK2SAY has had over 23,000 tips reported to the hotline to inform authorities about concerns of:
- Planned school attacks
- Suicide threats and more
School Administrators and Law Enforcement Professionals agree that the OK2SAY program is incredibly useful with 90% believing there was sufficient information in all tips that were reported.
To learn more about the program including how it works and contact information, please visit michigan.gov/ok2say.
MASSP and MASC/MAHS will be providing a new opportunity to schools across the state to help explain, promote and educate students and staff on the importance of using OK2SAY including new changes to the system and more. Our new Student Ambassador training program will feature a “train the trainer” model where we will provide training to student ambassadors who can more effectively bring back awareness training in a small group setting to their peers.
