Speakfully: Incident Reporting

submit a reportHistory
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. Unfortunately, our students, in particular, have shared that the lack of anonymity in our existing reporting structure and a sense of distrust has discouraged them from reporting concerning incidents. Our students’ candor and needs resonated.

The Office of Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (OEIB) was charged with creating an incident reporting system that addressed our students’ concerns. This year, the OEIB engaged in months of thoughtful planning and extensive stakeholder engagement. This critical work included:
  • 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, we are excited to announce the launch of Speakfully, a comprehensive Incident Reporting System, for all students, families and staff.

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.
