Incident Reporting Process for Northwest Local Schools


Generally, most reportable incidents fall into two categories, emergencies and non-emergencies.

  • If the matter is not an emergency, please call the appropriate building principal during the next school day to inform him/her of your concerns.


  • If the matter is an emergency (threat of violence toward the school or an individual, concern for the potential loss of life, etc.), our families can use the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System, which can be found at the link below. When deemed a life threatening situation, use of this link will very likely include communication with local law enforcement officials.


  • When in doubt, families can always call 9-1-1.

We encourage our families, parents and community members to actively communicate concerns and potential safety issues. By following the above guidelines, we can best address each issue most appropriately and more effectively.

As always, if you have any questions, contact your child's building administrator.
