The safety of scholars, staff, and visitors to our premises and buildings is a paramount and ongoing concern. The District submits a revised safety plan annually to the State of Ohio for approval. The state makes that plan available digitally to all District municipal safety forces. All buildings have been equipped with exterior door locks and a buzzer system for staff. Crisis Flip Charts have been developed with safety forces and have been issued to all staff in all buildings. The charts give a quickly-accessible list of processes to follow in nearly any school emergency. In addition, all schools have uniformed security guards present in buildings to maintain safety, peace and order. The Board has recently approved adoption of Anonymous Alert – a cellphone-based safety program than any scholar or parent can access through their cell phone to inform school administrators of bullying or some other safety violation.
