We take school safety seriously and continually work to create and nurture an inclusive culture for our diverse community that fosters the growth of the whole learner. To that goal, I want to inform you of a vital resource available to our school community: The Safer Ohio School Tip Line.
The Safer Ohio School Tip Line is an anonymous reporting system that accepts calls and texts 24 hours daily. This tip line allows students and adults to anonymously share information with school officials and law enforcement about threats to student safety — whether that involves a threatened mass incident or harm to a single student.
Things to report to the tip line include (but are not limited to):
Withdrawn student behaviors;
Verbal or written threats observed toward students, faculty, or schools;
Weapon/suspicious devices on or near school grounds;
Unusual/suspicious behavior of students or staff;
Self-harm or suicidal sentiments; and
Any other school safety-related concerns.
Please take a few minutes to watch this video for more information.
Every tip can remain anonymous. School safety analysts may ask for additional information, but the caller can remain unidentified or leave their contact information for later follow-up.
Analysts within Ohio Homeland Security answer calls or texts to 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764). If necessary, the analysts immediately forward information to local school officials, law enforcement agencies, and the Ohio School Safety Center (OSSC) for action and follow-up.
Tip line posters will be posted throughout Eastland Career Center and Fairfield Career Center. Tip cards will be made available in the main office, student services officers, and library media centers.
