Jenks Public Schools announced the launch of the Trojan Tipline app on Monday allowing members of the school community to anonymously share important safety information with school administrators and District officials. Developed by tip411, the Trojan Tipline app puts a powerful new safety tool into the hands of students, parents, and staff members to help them take responsibility for the safety of their schools, buses, and all JPS’ facilities. The Trojan Tipline app con be downloaded for free via the iTunes App Store, the Google Play Store, or by visiting the Jenks Public Schools’ website at www.jenksps.org and clicking on the “School Safety and Security” link in the Quicklinks section at the top of the home page.
“In order to fulfill our mission of creating the best possible learning environment for our students, we must use every available resource to keep our schools safe and secure,” stated Dr. Stacey Butterfield, Superintendent of Jenks Public Schools. “The Trojan Tipline app provides our students, parents, and staff members with a fast, effective platform for sharing important information. For years, we have encouraged our people to say something when they hear something or see something. Now, it is easier and quicker than ever before to speak up and make our schools safer.”
In addition to the Trojan Tipline app, safety tips and information can also be submitted by sending an anonymous text message to 847411 or via the Trojan Tipline webpage on the JPS website. To share a tip via text message, users can begin the message with one of the following codes – based on location – and type in the information they wish to submit.
TEXT CODE LOCATION
JENKSHS Jenks High School
JENKSFA Jenks Freshman Academy
JENKSAC Jenks Alternative Center
JENKSMS Jenks Middle School
JENKSK6 Any Jenks elementary or intermediate site
JENKSPS A Jenks facility or department not affiliated with a site
The Trojan Tipline app, text feature, and web platform, are all 100% anonymous as the technology removes all identifying information before administrators see the tips and there is no way to identify the sender. Once a tip is submitted, District officials receive it immediately and can respond to create an anonymous two-way conversation. Tips are monitored during normal school days and normal school hours. The Trojan Tipline is not a replacement for calling 911.
