The Michigan Attorney General’s office conducted presentations on student safety featuring the Michigan Cyber Safety Initiative (CSI) and the student safety hotline, OK2SAY.  The presentation was given to Highlander Way Middle School students in grades 6-8 on Monday, October 1, 2018.  

All students saw a video featuring peers who promote OK2SAY. Students learned what the OK2SAY program is, how it works, what types of incidents they can report, how to submit a tip, and what will happen with the tip.  Students then heard a detailed explanation about bullying, cyberbullying, suicide, sexting, sexual abuse, predators and advice on how to protect themselves online. Students saw a video about the power of words, deceptive ways internet predators target teens, along with a segment featuring students from Michigan that have tragically died by suicide due in part to bullying.  The last two videos showed the negative impact of sexting and one provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Handouts used during our presentations, videos, and additional information, can be accessed at the Attorney General's website, www.mi.gov/csi.  More information about the OK2SAY program, including resources, is available at www.mi.gov/ok2say.
