After the 1999 tragedy at Columbine High School, the Cherry Creek School District established the
as part of its ongoing school safety efforts, which emphasize the importance of prevention, positive school climate, and physical and psychological safety measures.
“Nothing is more important than the safety of our students, our staff members, and our families,” said Superintendent Mary Chesley. “The academic excellence that exists in our district stems from the fact that people are safe and feel safe in our schools, allowing them to focus on teaching and learning.”
“We want students, parents and community members to know this resource is available to them,” said Dr. Scott Siegfried, Assistant Superintendent, Educational Support Services. “We encourage them to share concerns directly with an administrator, teacher or counselor in a face-to-face manner, if possible. However, we know there are times when they may not feel comfortable doing that and want an anonymous reporting option.”
