Help Promote Hope - Statewide Office of Suicide Prevention and Suicide Prevention Coordinating Council

Help Promote Hope - Statewide Office of Suicide Prevention and Suicide Prevention Coordinating Council:

"WHAT DOES THIS LAW DO?
SB 434/HB 1061 amends the current statute to add suicide prevention education to school districts’ In-Service Master Development Plans as an option for school personnel from which to choose when deciding how to fulfill their individual professional development plan. Certificated personnel may use in-service points for re-certification purposes. Currently, a few school districts already include suicide prevention education in their district In-Service Plans. This legislation will afford the opportunity statewide to all school personnel.

The new legislation does not mandate suicide prevention training. In many cases, training does not cost anything as there are numerous free, online trainings and in-person trainings that school personnel can utilize. This law takes effect July 1, 2010."
