Another Great Year - SafeSchools 2016
New Year's Resolutions
We want to take a moment to thank all of our wonderful customers for making 2016 such a success. Our highlights this past year include: 
  • SafeSchools Training won a District Administration Top 100 Products designation 
    for the SEVENTH year in a row! A big thank you to the many customers who voted for us!
  • Our editorial and production teams were busy adding over 65 new SafeSchools Training courses on important school safety topics, including 11 state-specific courses. New courses include Administrative Supervision of Students, De-Escalation Strategies, and Terrorism: Awareness & Response (Administrators).
  • We welcomed a record-setting number of new customers to the SafeSchools family, including Albuquerque Public Schools, Jordan School District, and Syracuse City School District.
  • We increased the number of partners we work with this year, including ASBSD, GSBA RMS, MUSIC, School Bus Safety Company, and VACORP. It's rewarding to be able to serve more schools through these partnerships, while helping our partners create extra value for their customers at the same time.
  • We now offer the option to add valuable content libraries from School Bus Safety Company and Exceptional Child to your SafeSchools Training System to help you track all important compliance training in one easy-to-use system.
  • And, to top off the year, our product development and editorial teams were hard at work making a number of valuable enhancements to our systems and courses, including adding a designation to new and updated courses in your SafeSchools Training System, Offline Session enhancements, updating course content and adding rich media elements to many SafeSchools Training courses, and updating the SafeSchools Training login page.

Mid-Year Compliance Check
Winter Break is over and that means the school year is nearly halfway through! It's a great time to do a mid-year training and compliance check to be sure your school or district is on track to meet your safety goals and manage liability. A compliance check now gives you time before the school year ends to check on anyone who may not have completed their assigned training.

Here's how the SafeSchools Online Staff Training System can help your district:

Compliance Management System
Every employee training assignment and course completion is automatically documented in your SafeSchools Training System and is made available for compliance reporting in real-time. All reports can be exported to Excel instantly, with just a few clicks.

Compliance Notes
These helpful reminders provide additional actions that are needed to achieve full compliance. Examples of SafeSchools Training courses that have compliance notes are Asbestos Awareness, Bloodborne Pathogens, and Hazard Communications.
 
For more information on how SafeSchools Training can help with your compliance, please contact us at 1-800-434-0154 or info@safeschools.com today. Free trials are available! 
New Technologies That Make It Even Easier to Use SafeSchools Training
As technology changes, our team is on top of new ways to access or use your SafeSchools Online Staff Training System, including:
 
SAML Integration: Single Sign-on
SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is an XML-based standard for web browser single sign-on (SSO). The major advantage of SSO is that your users only have to sign on once and they can then access all the applications you've allowed. There's no longer a need to remember different usernames and passwords for different applications. SSO allows:  
  • Same login across browser.
  • Automatic login.
  • Faster access to SafeSchools Training.
  • Application access control.  
SCORM-Conformance 
The SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model) defines a specific way of constructing Learning Management Systems and training content so that they work well with other SCORM-conformant systems. The courses in the SafeSchools Training System can be set up to run through another SCORM conformant system.
 
For more information regarding SafeSchools Training and SAML or SCORM, contact us at 1-800-434-0154 or info@safeschools.com today!
Updated SafeSchools Training Course: Sexual Misconduct: Staff-to-Student
Our Creative Services team recently updated the Sexual Misconduct: Staff-to-Student course in the SafeSchools Online Staff Training System.
 
We've updated the content and added a number of rich media elements throughout the course, including: 
  • More video content.
  • New interactive exercise.
  • More scenarios.
  • New 'Knowledge Check' questions to reinforce content presented up to that point. 
In this course, you'll learn about the obligation of every staff member to provide an appropriate level of care for all students. Specifically, this course will explore the definition of sexual misconduct, the legal obligations of school staff members, signs of sexual misconduct by staff members, and how to create clear professional boundaries that protect you as well as students.
