What is Tik Tok?

Tik Tok is an short-video app that has been growing in popularity over the past couple of years. It started as a popular way for kids and adults to share videos of themselves lip-syncing to their favorite songs. Each video lasts up to 15 seconds, and users can add a variety of filters and effects. They also have the ability to send videos privately among friends or with the general public. Anyone can see public videos, even if they don’t have an account.

Potential concerns with Tik Tok

While meant to be a safe and fun way to share and express ideas and talents, Tik Tok, like most social media platforms, has potential risks that parents should be aware of. Although you can block or report others for inappropriate messages, TikTok has no broader parental controls. While you can set up your own account to private, anyone can still be exposed to sexual or violent content posted to the public feed. The potential for cyberbullying is also a major issue. People can create multiple different accounts, using aliases to target others they don’t like. Cyberbullying can also occur through the “Reactions” feature, which allows users to respond to videos with videos of their own. As with any form of social media or technology, it's important for parents to be aware of any risks that their child may be exposed to and monitor their use and time on social media.

Drug and Alcohol Prevention

The Davis School District is committed to the prevention of drug and alcohol use by our students.

ParentsEmpowered.org is a media and education campaign funded by the Utah Legislature and designed to prevent and reduce underage drinking in Utah by providing parents and guardians with information about the harmful effects of alcohol on the developing teen brain, along with proven skills for preventing underage alcohol use.

Prevention Dimensions (PD) is a set of Utah's Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities resource lessons which support the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 Health Core. The program began in 1982 as a joint effort between the Utah Division of Substance Abuse & Mental Health (DSAMH), Utah Department of Health, USBE and Utah PTA and has been revised several times since.

How to talk to teens about sexting: Learn why they do it and what to say about it.

Advancements in technology have opened up a new and potentially dangerous way for teens to explore their sexuality: sexting.
Sexting is the sharing and receiving of sexually explicit messages and nude or partially nude images via cellphone. Sexts may be sent as regular text messages or through apps, like Snapchat, Kik and WhatsApp. Teens may sext for a variety of reasons. They may be trying to establish intimacy with a boyfriend or girlfriend, impress a crush, or be funny. Others may feel pressured into sexting by boyfriends or girlfriends who may threaten to break up with them if they don't send a picture.

The risks

Teens may not believe or be able to foresee a situation in which the person they send a sext to chooses to share that image with others. However, it does happen and the consequences can be academically, socially and emotionally devastating.

Send this Instead

The "Send This Instead" App empowers kids, giving them a voice when they are under pressure to send intimate images of themselves online. We asked all the funny people we knew "What would you say if somone asked you to send images you didn't want to?" We took their answers, made posters and developed this app. The posters are witty, sarcastic and meant to help get the point across - using humor as a strategy. Available for free on Itunes App Store and Google Play.

HOPE Squads are the eyes and ears of your school. They are comprised of students who are trained to watch for at-risk students–provide friendship, identify warning signs, and seek help from adults.
HOPE Squad members are NOT taught to act as counselors, but rather, are educated on how to recognize signs of suicide contemplation, and how to properly and respectfully report this to an adult. Once invited to be HOPE Squad members, students willing to go through the training must get a permission form signed by their parents. After completing their training, HOPE Squad members host a parents’ night where they teach their parents and family members about what it means to be a HOPE Squad member.
