WETIP ANONYMOUS CRIME/THREAT REPORTING: DUSD has a relationship with WeTip, a service that allows people to share anonymous tips about potential threats or crimes at Dublin schools and facilities. That information is shared with local law enforcement and district officials and responded to immediately. You can share information anonymously online http://www.wetip.com or over the phone 1-800 732-7463 
DO YOU HAVE A TIP?:  Is there is a great story you think we should know about? If so, send us the lead. Include a few sentences of background information and some photos. We can't guarantee we'll cover it (don't take it personally, there is a lot going on in a district with 12K students and just over 1K staff) but we'd love to know.
