Tik Tok School Challenges

OFFICE OF THE SUPERINTENDENT

Southwest Preparatory is aware of the planned TikTok, tiktok logochallenges that are circulating online, and we are asking families to help us shut these down quickly. For those not familiar with TikTok, it is a short-form video-sharing app that allows users to create and share 15-second videos, on any topic.

The latest trend on the social media platform encourages students to participate in monthly “challenges” involving vandalism, violence, and other inappropriate behavior while at school. There is a list of “challenges” for each month of the school year. To view the list, please visit our website at www.swprep.org.

This is a concern as school districts across the state have been responding to theft, school property damage, fighting, and other concerning student behavior as a result of these harmful and destructive challenges. This has impacted school operations during an already challenging year and has resulted in unnecessary distractions from the important work our schools are doing to keep students safe and learning in person.

The behaviors encouraged by these TikTok challenges will not be tolerated by our schools. These challenges have escalated beyond minor pranks and are serious offenses that can lead to severe disciplinary consequences.

Please help our schools by speaking to your child(ren) about the serious nature of these challenges and the repercussions that can result from participating. Even if your child doesn't have TikTok or isn't likely to be involved in this type of inappropriate behavior, please encourage them to relay this information to their peers or to speak to a trusted adult on campus if they become aware of any information about these challenges occurring at school.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter and for your cooperative efforts to help ensure that our schools are safe for all students and staff.

Respectfully,

Christinn C. Jean Superintendent
