Suicide Prevention Plan, Crisis Intervention and Professional Learning

The Jason Flatt Act (KSA 72-8260) was passed by the Kansas Legislature and signed by the governor in spring 2016. As a result of this law, each building will have a crisis plan that will include:

  • recognition of suicide ideation;
  • appropriate interventions; and a
  • crisis recovery plan

So that this information is in the hands of those working closest to the student, each school will provide at least one hour of suicide awareness and prevention training for all school personnel. The content of this training will be made available for parental review.
