Crime Stopper App - P3 Campus

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

As part of Mercer County School District's commitment to students' safety and mental health, beginning today we are launching an anonymous reporting program, which will allow students and parents to make anonymous reports about concerns of safety or student wellness. Our program is student-focused, as opposed to crime­ focused, meaning it is a tool for alerting caring adults about students who need help-not snitching. This is part of our continuous effort to increase campus and student safety, and provide students with a safe, completely anonymous outlet to share concerns.

 

Students can use our new P3 Campus app to report: bullying, suicide concerns, depression, sexting, stealing, threats, cutting, abuse, dating and domestic violence, fights, drugs, alcohol, weapons or other types of dangerous situations that threaten their safety or the safety of others. Their reports will be addressed by a trained team of school officials and law enforcement, when necessary.

 

When you or your student have a concern, you can go to P3Campus.com on your computer, tablet, or laptop-­ or you can download the free P3 Campus mobile app-- and make a 100% anonymous report in less than five minutes.

 

The use of anonymous reporting apps in state programs like Safe2Tell Colorado have proven to be successful in providing the tools and information needed for school officials and to proactively address concerning behaviors, potential incidents of violence, and other harmful situations on campus before they develop. We look forward to working with you and your student to continue making the Mercer County Schools safe.

ANNOUNCEMENTS
THE ILLINOIS 5 ESSENTIALS SURVEY

Mercer County Schools will join the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) in the statewide survey of school climate and learning conditions. The survey provides a unique opportunity for students, teachers and parents to have a voice in improving their schools. From January 11 through March 11, 2022, students and teachers will be asked to take a research-based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school’s learning environment. These surveys will serve as an opportunity for schools to reflect on progress since the last statewide implementation. We encourage all our teachers, students, and parents to make their voices heard to impact future decisions by the administration and Board of Education.

 

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey provides a comprehensive picture of a school’s organizational culture in an individualized report measuring five “essentials” critical for school success:

 

  • Effective Leaders

  • Collaborative Teachers

  • Involved Families

  • Supportive Environment

  • Ambitious Instruction

We guarantee that survey responses will never be connected to the identity of you or your child. School reports will only present aggregated information of how parents and students responded as a whole. A parent survey report will only be generated if at least 20 percent of parents respond to the survey. While the parent data will not be made public, the parent report will be made available to administration and Board of Education and will enable them to make considerations based on the responses received Your participation in the parent survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Again, your identity and individual survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.
