March 14, 2022--Prevention Services Data Reporting

Prevention Services Data Reporting is conducted in response to Ohio law. Schools must report the types of prevention-focused programs, services and supports used to assist students in developing the knowledge and skills to engage in healthy behaviors and decision-making and increase their awareness of the dangers and consequences of risky behaviors. Superintendents and school leaders will receive an email from Ohio K12 Help, on March 21, with more information on how buildings should report the prevention-focused curriculum, instruction, programs and supports provided to students during the 2020-2021 school year. Schools will also be asked to report on prevention-focused professional development and community partnerships.
