Ensuring Safe & Caring Schools

Safer Schools Together (SST) has a proven record of helping schools throughout North America minimize and manage their risks of student violence with reliable, professional training. CSDSIP has arranged for SST to provide trainings across the state focused on school culture and climate. Using best practice from the field of Violence Bullying Prevention and Intervention Strategies, SST provides a strong understanding of how to create, develop, measure and evaluate school connectedness.  This training includes current social media trends, violence behavior patterns, and all facets of bullying and successful intervention strategies.

Digital Threat Assessment

Due to overwhelming demand, CSDSIP is bringing SST back to Colorado to provide Digital Threat Assessment Training to help our Members gain a comprehensive understanding of the current social media world, tools available to proactively identify student safety concerns, and strategies for dealing with online situations in real-time. Participants will leave this training comfortable in their ability to identify and address digital threats in their educational communities.

Adult Sexual Misconduct

Sexual misconduct is a tragic and too-common  problem that continues to negatively impact schools. In addition to devastating victims, sexual misconduct can cast a permanent shadow over employees who failed to prevent or identify the misconduct. Sexual misconduct can also lead to a waiver of sovereign immunity under the Claire Davis School Safety Act, subjecting schools to additional liability above and beyond the significant liability already faced under federal law.

 

We strongly recommend that members ensure that they have effective policies, practices and procedures in place to minimize the opportunity for sexual misconduct to occur. A critical element of preventing sexual misconduct is employee awareness and training.

Claire Davis School Safety Act

Do you know how the Claire Davis School Safety Act (SB-213) impacts you?

The Claire Davis School Safety Act (SB-213) was adopted in response to the 2013 shooting at Arapahoe High School that killed student Claire Davis. The Claire Davis School Safety Act changes the both the common law and CGIA as it applies to school districts and employees. Prior to the Claire Davis Act, there were eight waivers of immunity under the CGIA. The Claire Davis Act added a ninth waiver of immunity for “Incidents of School Violence.” Specifically, the Claire Davis Act strips schools of governmental immunity when they fail to exercise reasonable care to protect students and staff members from incidents of school violence that are reasonably foreseeable. CSDSIP has created a training video to explain the language of the Claire Davis Act and what the new law means for our Members. Participants will be introduced to the law, taught how it affects governmental immunity and be provided recommendations of steps schools can take to help keep students and staff safe. The video comes with an accompanying manual to assist with training.

Playground Safety Series

The Colorado School Districts Self Insurance Pool (CSDSIP) has developed a four part “Playground Safety Series” to aid school personnel in providing a safe environment for students and users while on the playground. The Mission of CSDSIP is to provide a user friendly format to bring public schools into compliance with the current standards and best practices advanced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and ASTM Guidelines. These voluntary standards have evolved into the standard of care for designing and managing public playgrounds. Participants will be introduced to common playground risk exposures and given strategies to identify and manage those risks.  The information provided in this program should be customized to reflect your policies, procedures and management protocols to improve its effectiveness.

Defensive Driving

Colorado School Districts Self Insurance Pool (CSDSIP) has created a defensive driving training video designed to introduce personnel to accident prevention tips. Participants will be introduced to five defensive driving techniques and strategies to manage risks on the road. This video will also review the top three CSDSIP claims in terms of both severity and frequency. The goal of this video is to help reinforce safe driving skills and reduce poor driving habits. The information provided in this program should be customized to reflect your policies, procedures and management protocols to improve its effectiveness.
