S 528: Requires certain additional school district personnel to complete training program on suicide prevention.

S 528 (Ruiz, Pou):  NJEA supports ensuring that all who interact with students are prepared to recognize the signs of any student exhibiting suicidal tendencies. All educators are currently trained in suicide prevention, but this bill ensures that all other employees who may interact with students are also prepared. Everyone needs to have the tools and training to support students and their well-being in these challenging times.

NJEA supports S 528 and encourages you to do the same.
