We’ve all been there. While having fun or just hanging out, we see something going on that we believe is dangerous, will hurt somebody else, or is simply wrong. Some of us may choose to say something while others may not feel comfortable or safe in doing so. Text-a-Tip from Linn County Crime Stoppers offers an alternative way to safely and anonymously intervene. Bystanders that have knowledge of a crime can text the necessary information (ie: who, what, where, and when) to law enforcement. The text is routed through a server in Canada allowing the tipster and the investigator to have a two-way dialog while keeping the tipster's identity anonymous. When the tipster is done with their report, they can simply enter STOP at the end of the text stopping the communication and erasing relevant texts. The tipster’s identifying information does not need to be shared unless they are seeking a reward. What a great way to play a role in stopping crime and increasing safety anonymously.

North-Linn students shall become compassionate, intelligent, productive and well-adjusted world citizens who have sound moral standards, respect for human dignity, and proper regard for human and natural resources.
We believe that each individual should achieve a high degree of competence in the basic skills necessary to live in our increasingly changing world. It is the responsibility of the North-Linn community to determine the needs, interests, and abilities of each individual student so we may guide and direct student learning. Through the cooperative efforts of the North-Linn learning community (students, teachers, administrators, staff, parents, and community), we will cooperatively program our curriculum, instruction, and assessment for each student's greatest success.
North-Linn Community School District's mission is to create a proud learning community where everyone counts and everyone cares. The district members are committed to developing an educational environment that offers the maximum opportunity for all students to learn and become a respectful member of the community at all levels from family to global.
