Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine releases the recommendations of his School Safety Task Force, including schools forming local partnerships with emergency first responders to manage school emergencies, and a template safety plan that includes information and best practices Ohio schools can use to build their safety plans.
The template developed by the task force is an electronic document which can be downloaded from the Ohio Attorney General's website and customized by each school. The template directs schools to include key information and contacts, along with standardized floor plans in the beginning of the document so that law enforcement can easily access this critical information in the event of an emergency. Law enforcement access a school's plans from the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway (OHLEG), which is administered by the Attorney General's Office.
All school safety resources can be viewed on the Ohio Attorney General's School Safety webpage, www.OhioattorneyGeneral.gov/SchoolSafety.
