What is Safer Schools Ohio?
Safer Schools Ohio is a multi-agency effort created to assist schools in continuously improving the safety of our students.  Paramount in this effort is ensuring each school has a strong emergency management plan.


Safety Plans

Schools are comparing their existing plans to a model plan developed by the Attorney General’s School Safety Task Force that outlines the best approaches to keeping kids safe.  State experts, including those in the Department of Public Safety’s Ohio Homeland Security division, review the information and provide guidance to help schools implement best practices and improve their plans.


Reporting to 844-SAFEROH

By calling or texting the statewide anonymous hotline: 844-SAFEROH - you can report anything that is suspicious or endangering you, your friends or your school.  Public safety officials offer this hotline at no cost to schools as a way for students to report potential suicides, school shootings, bullying or other problems anonymously.
