For Students and Families
The Ohio School Safety Center provides every school district in the State of Ohio a free Safer Ohio School Tip Line, that allows students and adults to anonymously share information with school officials and law enforcement about threats to student safety. Concerns you can 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Withdrawn student behaviors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
Any other school safety-related concerns.
Calls or texts to 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764) are answered by analysts within Ohio Homeland Security. If action is needed, the analysts immediately forward that information to local school officials, law enforcement agencies and the Ohio School Safety Center for action and follow-up. Every tip can remain anonymous. Although school safety analysts may ask for additional information, the caller can remain secret or leave his or her contact information for later follow-up. We are excited to put this additional safety measure in place for our school community.
