Clarke County School District has launched a new anonymous tip line for CCSD community members to report security-related concerns to district and school officials. The CCSD Tip Line can also be utilized to acknowledge good deeds and achievements made by students and staff.

The new safety system follows a growing trend of school tip lines, which have been gaining traction nationwide in recent years. According to a 2019 survey of more than 1,200 public middle and high schools, 51% were operating a tip line.

CCSD has organized a response team to investigate incoming tips. All tips are anonymous by default, but there is an option to include one’s name and contact information.

Tips can be submitted through CCSD’s website or called in by dialing 706-229-7243.
