December 1, 2014 — Awareity’s TIPS Prevention Platform has been recognized for making a positive difference in education by K12 leaders who named it to District Administration magazine’s “Readers’ Choice Top 100 Products for 2014.”
From a record-setting 2,400 nominations, TIPS was selected by District Administration editors based on the highest number of submissions and best product descriptions from K-12 leaders. The Readers’ Choice Top 100 Products award informs superintendents and other senior district leaders about products their colleagues around the country are using to help their districts excel in a variety of areas such as technology, sustainability and curriculum instruction.
Awareity’s TIPS (Threat Assessment, Incident Management and Prevention Services) is an innovative platform of web-based tools designed to empower students, parents, teachers and staff to confidentially and anonymously report potentially harmful student safety concerns, including bullying, weapons, drug/alcohol use, gangs, harassment or intimidation, vandalism, physical/sexual assaults, threats of violence, suicide risk, abuse and others. Once reports are made, TIPS provides a central and secure system for school personnel to proactively investigate the concern, objectively assess the situation, track and document all actions taken and monitor students with ongoing follow-ups and reminders.
TIPS is not just an incident reporting solution; TIPS is a comprehensive risk management and prevention platform that ensures all incident reports get to the right people in the right places at the right time with the right documentation so people can do the right things. The ability to manage Professional Development and mandated policy, customized training, updates to processes and procedures etc. also makes the TIPS Awareness and Accountability Vault increasingly valuable for school districts looking to cut costs.
“We are excited to be honored again as a Top 100 Product by District Administration readers,” said Katie Johnson, vice president of marketing and client services at Awareity. “Many school leaders are struggling to find cost-effective solutions to ensure student safety. TIPS has been implemented with great success in over 400 schools across the US and Canada. This award is a true testament to our product and our dedication to ongoing safety and prevention.”
“With the Top 100 award program steadily growing in size and recognition each year, all of our 2014 honorees should be very proud of their success,” says JD Solomon, District Administration’s editorial director. “We hope that all of our readers continue to be inspired and find innovative ideas from their peers who have had successful product implementations.”
