USEVS Joins SaferOH!

posted Nov 6, 2015, 6:09 AM by Jim Frye

Upper Sandusky Schools has joined 844-SaferOH, Ohio's new school safety tip line! SaferOH enables students, parents, teachers and school administrators to anonymously report student safety threats to school officers and law enforcement officers. These threats may include a potential incident of mass violence, a suicide threat or a student who is being bullied.

Trained professionals at Ohio Homeland Security's Threat Assessment and Prevention unit answer all calls and texts to 844-SaferOH. TAP staff immediately forward information to Upper Sandusky Schools as well as local law enforcement and others. The TAP staff then follows up quickly with school and law enforcement agencies to ensure the incident is investigated and the outcome tracked.

The tip line is available 24 hours a day. The call center guarantees that the person who calls or texts will remain anonymous. Tip line workers may seek additional information, but the person who calls or texts may remain anonymous or leave contact information in case if the tip line workers need to follow up.

"The safety of our boys and girls remains the top priority of our schools," Ohio Superintendent of Public Information Richard A. Ross stated in a press release. "The SaferOH tip line provides another resource for schools and school districts in their continuing efforts to provide a safe and secure educational environment."
Research shows that in 81 percent of violent incidents in U.S. schools, someone other than the attacker knew something was occurring or going to occur but failed to report it. Typically, according to the Ohio Department of Education, that's because the person who knew something feared they would become a target of the attacker or bully or be labeled a "snitch."

Joining SaferSchools Ohio is another example of how Upper Sandusky Schools are working towards collaboratively establish a safe, respectful and caring environment that promotes student learning.
