The Safety and Violence Prevention Training is a project of the Ohio Department of Education and is designed to provide Ohio’s kindergarten through grade 12 school personnel with opportunities to learn about key behavioral and mental health issues that face Ohio’s students. Many children come to school each day with one or more of these issues which effect their learning.
The objective of this training is to remind school professionals of the important role they play in the early identification of critical issues affecting students. Through identifying student needs and through small interventions, educators can ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to succeed at school. Often students’ unmet social, emotional or mental health needs interfere with their learning. When these needs are addressed, they can learn more effectively.
The following training consists of four modules. Each module contains a video presentation followed by a brief quiz to check your understanding of the content that was presented in the video presentation. You will be required to watch the video in its entirety and complete the quiz with at least a score of 70% correct in order to move on to the next module. After all four modules have been completed you will be able to print a certificate of completion to present to your local school district.
Please allow an hour of time for completion of each of the modules for a total of four hours of training.
Users can log out and back in and work through the training at their own pace, the system keeps track of your progress and you will be able to see sections that have been completed as well as sections of the training that need to be completed.
Each participant in this training module should obtain a username and password from your local school district in order to begin the training.
