New Phone System Coming to Tippecanoe Valley in January

The Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation (TVSC) is pleased to announce that over the holiday break, all TVSC schools and facilities will be transitioning to a new Voice over IP (VoIP) phone system. The new system will be operational as of Tuesday, January 5, 2016, replacing an aging phone system that can no longer be updated or in many cases repaired due to failure. The new phone system will allow TVSC to maintain the highest level of service to its patrons.

Please note that all phone numbers throughout the district will be changing to a 598 prefix, making calls to any school a local call for most patrons. The new numbers will be: Akron Elementary School (574-598-2367), Burket Educational Center (574-598-2600), Mentone Elementary School (574-598-2590), Tippecanoe Valley Middle School (574-598-2200), Tippecanoe Valley High School (574-598-2100), Tippecanoe Valley Bus Garage (574-598-2490), and Tippecanoe Valley Administration Office (574-598-2759). Staff phone extensions will also change.

TVSC eagerly anticipates the many benefits that will accompany the installation of this new phone system.

Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation (TVSC) is pleased to announce its new Safe Schools Hotline, a service that provides a means of reporting incidents or possible threats before they happen, so TVSC can take the steps necessary to prevent them from taking place.

TVSC Safe Schools Hotline is a telephone application (voice or text message) that allows students, parents, and members of the community to report threats of violence, bullying, suicide, theft, gang activity, drug use, vandalism or any other concern at any TVSC school. With this telephone application, when someone calls the number to report a threat or problem, the caller is prompted to leave a message along with any other important information.  The message is immediately transmitted via telephone, cell phone and email to the building administrators and the TVSC school resource officer. TVSC has the ability to manage the calls through a web site, where school officials can see and download call reports. A full transcript of the call is transmitted with each email so that the administrator has first-hand knowledge of the call received.  A school administrator will evaluate the potential threat level and respond accordingly.

In a world where the unthinkable happens somewhere nearly every day, tools such as the TVSC Safe Schools Hotline are needed to help protect students and staff from a tragedy that no parent, teacher, or school administrator wants to deal with - ever.  If you have first-hand knowledge of a potentially harmful situation, please call the TVSC Safe Schools Hotline at (574) 387-3825.
