House Bill 410 - Absentees and Truancy

Ohio House Bill 410 has completely changed the way schools must deal with truancy and absenteeism.  The new law creates a new process for youth who are missing school: Under current law, Ohio schools are required to have a list of interventions they can use for students who are absent. However, schools are not required to use these interventions and instead can refer youth directly to the juvenile court without any intervention.

Parents can now add additional numbers to their One Call accounts and also add emails for another way of receiving important information.  Just click on the link provided in the right hand column on our main webpage.

Western Brown Safety Plan Notification

Western Brown School District has reviewed and revised our School Emergency Operations Plan and as a result, we are making parents aware of the Parental Notification Procedures to be implemented in the event of an incident. This protocol can be found below and on our web site. Please make every attempt to keep your contact information current and notify the building secretary of any changes in your contact information.

Staff and Parental Notification Procedures:

In the event of an incident, communication will be provided through the one-call system to inform parents / staff and to provide additional information.  

Parents and staff, Pesticide Application notifications will be posted on the school's website under the Maintenance tab on the left hand side.
Western Brown also offers the SafeSchools Alert, a tip reporting service that allows students, staff, and parents to submit safety concerns to our administration four different ways:
1.  Phone:  1-855-4ALERT1, ext 1116

3.  Email:  1116@alert1.us
4.  Web:  http:1116.alert1.us
You can easily report tips on bullying, harassment, drugs, vandalism or any safety issue you're concerned about through SafeSchools Alert.  When you submit a tip, be sure to use our district's identification code:1116.   Please refer the tip to the appropriate building and make sure your tip concerns a school issue.  Together we can make our district a safer place to work and learn!
