HB 123 Requirements
Ohio's 133rd General Assembly enacted House Bill 123, the "Safety and Violence Education Students (SAVE Students) Act,"  "Safety and Violence Education Students (SAVE Students) Act," regarding school security and youth suicide awareness education and training. The state legislation calls for a comprehensive approach to school safety involving the Ohio Department of Education, Public Safety, Mental Health and Addiction Services, and the Attorney General’s Office.

HB 123 requires each local, city, exempted village, and joint vocational school district to create a threat assessment team for each school building in the district serving grades six through twelve. Each team shall be multidisciplinary, when possible, and may include school administrators, mental health professionals, school resource officers, and other necessary personnel. The goal of these teams is to prevent violence and resolve conflicts that underlie threatening behavior.

The Student Wellness Department, in partnership with Ohio Schools Council, offers the following services as related to violence prevention:

Audit of framework
Coaching and consultation
Professional Development using the CSTAG Model
