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.


District BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Information!

posted Oct 5, 2014, 7:24 AM by Jim Frye

Students in grades 6-12 can participate in our district "BYOD" (Bring Your Own Device) program, meaning they are permitted to bring to school technology devices they personally own, i.e. iPod Touch, iPad, Android tablet, Nook, Kindle, laptop. There is a form that must be signed off  on first and this form is available in the main office of the MS and/or HS office (also attached below). Students are 100% responsible for their device and the district is exempt for any damage or theft that may occur while on school grounds. Below is our BYOD Policy & FAQ document to help answer any questions.


Report Cards Available in Parent Portal!

posted Nov 1, 2013, 2:17 PM by Jim Frye   [ updated Nov 17, 2016, 5:35 AM by Tim Pohlman ]

ATTN: ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS

A new feature has been added to our Parent Portal, Online Report Cards! When parents log into Parent Portal, in the left column of choices, you'll now see "Report Cards" (see attachment). If you click on "Report Cards" you'll be able to the same information that you would see on a printed report card.

The long term plan for the district to stop printing grade cards with them now available via Parent Portal, except for anyone who would request we print for those with no computer, and/or internet access. This will be a money saving measure for the district, i.e. not using paper, toner, envelopes, and stamps. No date has been set when this might take place, but know this discussion has started.

If you have not yet established your Parent Portal account, you can contact your child's building secretary or email Mr. Frye at jim_f@usevs.org. He can provide you, via email, with a Parent Portal Information Letter, which provides you with the steps to create your Parent Portal account. Remember there are also mobile apps for Parent Portal for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. Search the iTunes App Store or Google Play store for PowerSchool for Parents.

We hope you like this new feature and use it as needed!
