| Welcome Message from Kelley Hodge
My name is Kelley Hodge, and I am your Safe Schools Advocate. My number one priority is to ensure that if you are a victim of school violence, you get the help that you need. If, while you are at school or on your way to school, you have been bullied, harassed, assaulted or threatened, I want to know.
As your advocate, there are many things I can do to help you. Beyond providing information on available victims' support services , I can – when requested by you – represent you at disciplinary hearings. As a victim of school violence, you have rights and the Office of Safe Schools Advocate (OSSA) is here to protect them.
OSSA is located in the School District Educational Center (Suite #1198) and the hours are 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. (If you leave a voicemail message after these hours or on the weekend, it will be returned the next business day.) The hotline number is 1-877-730-6315.
Please know that I am honored to have the opportunity to be entrusted with helping you. My staff and I stand ready to assist. We look forward to helping to promote a learning environment where students and staff are safe.
