Stand Up for a Safe Utah with the SafeUT app

SafeUT Smartphone app attached with KSL's Stand Up for a Safe Utah

KSL 5 TV is taking action today to Stand Up for a Safe Utah by bringing awareness to the SafeUT Smartphone App, a statewide tip line service that provides real-time crisis intervention to youth.

Ogden School District launched SafeUT last year and it is a great resource that every parent, student and educator should be aware of. The SafeUT link can be found on the Counseling page of each school's website.

SafeUT provides a confidential two-way communication with SafeUT crisis counselors to students and school administrators. Students can use the SafeUT phone app or website to send non-crisis tips to school officials regarding topics such as bullying, cyberbullying, gang activity, drug & alcohol activity, and more. All tips are completely anonymous.

KSL is also doing a contest asking for screenshots of the app on your phone with your school tagged in the comments. Ten random winners will get $50 gift cards, but the school with the most tags wins 100 pizzas. Winners will be announced on Friday's 5 p.m. newscast.#SafeUT #KSLCares

Congratulations to Milissa Avila, Lincoln 5th grade teacher, for being honored with Ogden School District's January Achieving Higher Award!

Congratulations to Milissa Avila, Lincoln 5th grade teacher, for being honored with Ogden School District's January Achieving Higher Award! She demonstrates extraordinary skill in aligning purpose, resources and priorities to the three clarity of purpose questions.

Read her nominations below:

"Missy has set goals with her students. She reviews these goals periodically with her students as they take certain benchmark assessments. She has drilled down to identify where her students have not mastered a standard/skill. Missy uses her scheduled tier 2 time, any free time, and after school to instruct her students on the parts that they have not mastered. Her students feel valued and not embarrassed because of how she approaches the results with them. It is not an approach of here is another thing you don't know but one rather of look what you know and how close you were to getting the problem correct or mastering the standard. Her students are motivated to close their learning gap and have a sense of pride when they do. Missy involves parents and lets them be a part of the students celebrations by communicating with them very often on how their student is doing. Working with her team Missy has led out on finding and researching different supplemental resources for reading and math. She has been able to find some great resources that is allowing her class and grade teach the literacy and math standards. It is difficult to find good curricular materials that match the certain standard we are trying to teach and Missy has spent many hours finding materials that benefit our students." - Ross Luncford
