About Safe2SpeakUP

Lytle ISD promotes a safe and healthy environment for learning and participating in activities. We consider bullying a serious matter. We diligently investigate each allegation and respond with appropriate interventions and/or consequences. 

Lytle ISD has added a communications tool called Safe2SpeakUP at our junior high and high school campuses, allowing our students and parents to quickly, easily, and anonymously report urgent information to school officials. The system empowers students to report bullying, drug use or other personal safety concerns through private messages sent on their mobile and computer Internet-enabled devices. 

All reports are completely anonymous and will be sent directly to school administrators, although students have the option to reveal their identity if they prefer to have a person-to-person discussion.
