In addition, SafeSchools offers South Dakota school districts a one hour suicide awareness and prevention training course, which meets the state’s training requirement for the initial certificate and renewal certificate of a teacher, administrator or other educational professional.
The Youth Suicide Awareness and Prevention training requirement comes from the passage of 2016’s Senate Bill 129, which establishes certain suicide awareness and prevention training requirements for certain school employees.

“The variety of training options provides our district with what we need to ensure staff receives both mandated training and other options for continued professional growth,” Martin said.
In addition, SafeSchools publishes a monthly newsletter – School Safety Newsletter – that provides the latest news in available trainings, best practices and about the company.
The first newsletter of the New Year covers mid-year compliance checks, teen dating violence, a recap of 2017 and much more.
