Ann Arbor Public Schools Student Safety

  • Student Safety: Our Top Priority in the AAPS

    As is true on every day of school in the Ann Arbor Public Schools, keeping our students safe remains our very top priority, even before our critical mission of teaching and learning. We take the responsibility of student safety very seriously. Our teachers, staff, and leaders are trained and safety protocols are in place in all of our classrooms and schools in the AAPS. Further, we are reminded that the most important component of our school and community safety plan is that every one of us must, whenever we 'see something, say something.'  Please reach out anytime you have concerns so that we can address issues immediately. 

    As a reminder for students, parents, and staff, when any concerns or unease arise, we encourage students and parents to reach out right away to an adult at school for assistance. We want to know anytime there are concerns. For those who may prefer to share a concern without revealing their identity, we recommend using the OK2Say tool, where tips can be submitted 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week by telephone, text message, email, mobile app, or via the OK2SAY website.
