The Teaching & Learning Department has identified a quality online course that can be completed to meet the new license renewal requirement of “Suicide Prevention Best Practices”. This free, two hour course, focuses on a the education specific role of teachers and provides research-based information that will strengthen your understanding about this vital topic. One of the focus areas of this course is for you to learn enough information about suicide to identify possible at-risk students so you can refer these students to more trained individuals within our schools. Developed by The Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide, this course is targeted to teachers working with teen and pre-teen populations, but all of the knowledge is applicable to all staff within the district. Staff may register and complete this course at anytime.
