    HELP FOR HARVEY 

    As a reminder, in January 2016 and 2017, Derby, along with the entire Birmingham Public School District, collected emergency items for DRAW buckets to be distributed to areas in the United States that have suffered from natural disasters.  BPS will again be collecting emergency items and assembling buckets for DRAW in January of 2018.  However, in the meantime there are opportunities for immediate help. 
    Please visit  info@drawbuckets.org for more information on how you can help.

    OK2Say
    Linked on the District website you’ll find OK2SAY, a program designed to empower Michigan students, parents, school personnel, community mental health service programs and law enforcement to share and respond to student safety threats. The goal of OK2SAY is to stop harmful behavior before it occurs by encouraging students to report threatening behavior to caring adult authorities who can help. Featuring a comprehensive communication system that facilitates tip submissions through telephone, text, website, email and multimedia technologies, OK2SAY enables Michigan residents to confidentially report student safety threats to trained program operators, who forward tips on to local law enforcement agencies, school officials, or community mental health service programs for a timely response. You can find OK2Say on the district website or by clicking here: http://www.michigan.gov/ok2say
