Speakfully: Incident Reporting

submit a reportRelaunching Speakfully
At CPS, we are dedicated to ensuring that we have a district that respects and embraces differences to create a community of care and belonging for everyone. One of the best ways to ensure that we do this is to be responsive to issues that arise, which negatively impact the experiences of our students and staff. Therefore, this 2023-24 school year, we are planning to continue using Speakfully, which provides students, staff, and caregivers with an additional avenue to submit an incident report.

AIn the 2022-23 school year, the Office of Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (OEIB) was charged with creating an incident reporting system that addressed our students’ concerns regarding the lack of anonymity in our existing reporting structure and a sense of distrust that discouraged them from reporting concerning incidents.

This critical work include months of thoughtful planning and extensive stakeholder engagement, including:

  • Reviewing previous work conducted by CRLS student groups, including the Microaggressions Working Group and the Incident Reporting/Responding Design Team.
  • Collaborating with multiple students, educators, and school and district leaders to gain their input on the incident reporting system.
  • Incorporating feedback received at School Committee meetings and other meetings with stakeholders.
  • Meeting with leaders from other districts to share best practices.

As a result of this process, Speakfully was launched in May 2022.

What is Speakfully?
Speakfully is an incident reporting platform that facilitates the prompt and private reporting of an incident. Speakfully is hosted outside of CPS, which provides optimum security in the submission process. After answering a few questions, the incident report goes directly to the Superintendent’s Office and the Office of Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (OEIB) in real-time, allowing CPS to take action as soon as possible. A report can be made anonymously if the school community member chooses.
