Riverhead Students Empowered To Share

first_imgThe Riverhead Central School District is continuing its efforts to ensure the school community feels safe and supported by implementing Shareit, an anonymous reporting platform.“Safety is the number one concern of our board of education and administration,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Aurelia Henriquez said. “Shareit allows our school community — students, faculty, staff, parents, and residents — an opportunity to share positive feedback on school climate and speak out about safety, security, and wellness-related concerns in a non-threatening arena. We will continue to research programs that best fit our student population and promote safety and wellness.”Although users can report known issues or share positive news on an anonymous basis, the platform does offer the option to identify oneself.
