Agenda Item #32

Item Title
C-33 Continue Training in the Safe Crisis Management Program for ESE employee's school year 2008-2009.


Currently school personnel must manage students physically for the protection of the student and others.  The School Board adopts a series of techniques that have been designed to avoid injury.  We are again requesting approval to utilize and train JKL Management's Safe Crisis Management Program.

Personnel have been trained and using this program for the past three years.  This program provides an effective, safe management technique for the restraint of students whose behaviors require personnel to intervene.  The program promotes safety and reduces the potential liability.


Recommended Action
Superintendent recommends approval.

Financial Impact
Training will be required in some job positions.  Initial training of trainers is supported by grant funds.  Updating and training of most clay personnel is then provided by these trainers.  Both ESE funds and grant funds are then utilized, costing approximately $20,000.00 per year.
