District improves "Cavs Who Care" tip line

October 27, 2022

As part of our district’s commitment to student safety and mental health, Lake Travis ISD is pleased to launch a much-improved "Cavs Who Care" anonymous reporting tip line, effective Monday, October 31.

Much like the previous tip line, the new software will allow students and parents to make anonymous reports regarding safety and wellness. However, one of the most notable improvements to the reporting tool is the ability for the tipster to engage in one-on-one communication with a live operator 24 hours a day, seven days a week while remaining completely anonymous, if he/she chooses to do so. Our tip line is student-focused as opposed to crime-focused, meaning it is a tool for alerting caring adults about students who need help. This is part of our continuous efforts to increase campus and student safety while providing students with a safe and completely anonymous resource to share concerns.

Concerns can continue to be reported in one of two ways:

Students can report bullying, suicide concerns, depression, threats, cutting, abuse, fights, drugs, alcohol, weapons, or any other type of dangerous situation that threatens their safety or the safety of others. Reports will be addressed by a trained team of crisis personnel, school officials, and law enforcement officers, when necessary.

The use of anonymous reporting apps has proven to be successful in providing the tools and information needed for school officials to proactively address concerning behaviors, potential incidents of violence, and other harmful situations on campus before they develop. We look forward to working with you and your family to continue making Lake Travis ISD a safe environment for our students, staff, parents, and visitors.

Sincerely,

Andy Michael
Chief of Police, Lake Travis ISD
