Youth Suicide Awareness and Prevention Model Policy Publication

Pursuant to Section 170.048, RSMo, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) developed a model policy regarding youth suicide awareness and prevention. This model policy may be adopted by Missouri school districts to meet the requirements of Section 170.048, RSMo which provides as follows:

  1. By July 1, 2018, each district shall adopt a policy for youth suicide awareness and prevention, including plans for how the district will provide for the training and education of its district employees. (1)The Union R-XI School District adopted Policy JHDF for youth suicide awareness and prevention.
  2. Each district's policy shall address, but not be limited to, the following: 
    (1) Strategies that can help identify students who are at possible risk of suicide; (2) Strategies and protocols for helping students at possible risk of suicide; and (3) Protocols for responding to a suicide death.

This model policy is intended to serve as a template for our district in developing suicide prevention policy. We are currently meeting as a team to adapt and customize the model policy to best address and meet the needs of our school community.

As you may have already heard, Union R-XI voters voted to approve our no tax increase bond issue. 73% of voters were in favor, while 27% were opposed.

With the passing of #propwildcats, we have some amazing opportunities to enhance and strengthen the quality of education we provide our students.

On behalf of the district and all our students, I'd like to personally thank each of you for your support and assistance in helping to make #propwildcats a reality for our community. There is no doubt in my mind that this wouldn't have been possible without your help.

Though much has already been done to prepare for the possibility of #propwildcats passing, this is really just the beginning. In the coming months, many of you will be asked to be a part of more specific and detailed conversations around how we can maximize these funds for the greatest impact on our district.

In closing, thank you again for your help, and please know, the work you do day in and day out for our students doesn't go unnoticed.

 

It's a great day to be a Wildcat.

 

Dr. Steve Weinhold, Superintendent

Since the district has committed itself to providing more technology access to our students, we are equally committed to helping keep them safe and providing transparency while using district technology. As a result, the district is rolling out a new system called 'Securly Parent Portal' starting Wednesday, 10/11. Parents/guardians will start receiving a weekly email with detailed information about their child's online activity while using their chromebooks.  Parents of 7-12 graders also have the ability to monitor and personalize their child's internet experience when students are using their device outside of school.  Additional information such as the welcome letter, overview, and FAQ are attached below.  If you have additional questions about this system, please feel free to contact your child's school. In closing, we appreciate your patience as we implement this new system with the goal of keeping our kids safe.
