Gov. Larry Hogan announced a Safe Schools Maryland tip line for students to make anonymous tips about suspicious and threatening behavior in schools: 833-632-7233. Tip line calls will go to MEMA headquarters. The governor said the tip line is not intended to replace 911 and that it has been in the works for quite a while.
“Classrooms should never be a place of fear,” Hogan said.
The state has also created a new app, #SafeSchoolsMaryland.
Maryland has been awarded $3.6 million in federal grants designed to further strengthen classroom safety, the Maryland State Department of Education announced Wednesday.
