The 1999 Kansas Legislature has appropriated funds to assist the State
Department of Education, in cooperation with the Kansas Highway Patrol,
in establishing a school safety hotline. This hotline is a toll free
number available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year to give students,
parents, and community members the opportunity to report any impending
school violence. As you are aware, students usually have knowledge of
potential school violence before it occurs. This hotline would give
students the opportunity to anonymously report any potential violence.
The Kansas School Safety Hotline Number is (877) 626-8203.
Personnel at the Salina Central Dispatch of the Kansas Highway Patrol
will answer the hotline number. The dispatchers will get as much
information about each situation reported as the caller wishes to
relay. Upon receipt of a call, the dispatchers will notify appropriate
law enforcement agencies and/or the office of the superintendent of
schools depending upon the severity of the situation.
If you have questions concerning the Hotline, please contact:
Dale M. Dennis Deputy, Commissioner of Education 120 East Tenth Street, Topeka, Kansas 66612-1182 (785) 296-3871 Telephone (785) 296-0459 Fax email@example.com
