LANSING — State officials are enthusiastic about the progress of a new school safety program that encourages students to anonymously report threatening activity. “In the first year we were wondering how it would go, and I will say I think it’s been overwhelmingly successful,” said Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue, director of the Michigan State Police. Under the OK2SAY program, students can submit tips by text, email or phone app. The program also keeps tips completely confidential by law.
