Suicide & Depression Awareness & Prevention

Youth suicide impacts the safety of the school environment. It also affects the school community, diminishing the ability of surviving students to learn and the school’s ability to educate. Suicide and depression awareness and prevention are important goals of the school district.

The school district maintains a Policy on suicide and depression awareness and prevention.  Click Here to view the Policy.
