District Saves 40 Hours a Year in Meeting Time with SafeSchools Training

Aberdeen School District 06-1, in South Dakota, serves roughly 4,500 students and 600 employees in 9 schools. The district adopted the SafeSchools Online Training System in 2014 to shift their safety and compliance training online. Since then, over 1,000 users have completed more than 21,000 SafeSchools Training courses!

The Need: A More Efficient Way to Deliver District-required Training to Staff

Before adopting SafeSchools Training, Aberdeen administrators were having a difficult time training employees due to limited resources and time. Aberdeen selected SafeSchools Training for the wide variety of training options, the convenience of being able to conduct training anywhere, at any time, and the documentation of required district trainings.

The Results: Significant Time-Savings for School Staff

Now, Aberdeen has decreased the amount of time required to prepare for and schedule staff trainings. In addition, the district has reduced the amount of money spent compensating employees for time spent outside of school to complete trainings. Plus, staff like the flexibility to complete training on their own time, when it’s most convenient for them, and that most of their SafeSchools Training courses are only 15 to 25 minutes.

Camille Kaul, Assistant Superintendent, estimates that SafeSchools Training has saved Aberdeen 40 hours a year in meeting time! She also notes, “SafeSchools Training is easy to use, has a great selection of courses, including the option to add your own custom items like a school handbook. The courses are engaging and appropriate in length, and the company has great customer service.”

The biggest benefit Aberdeen has seen from using SafeSchools Training? “This system gives us an easy way to keep track of required federal training and to provide additional training without sending staff out of town,” says Kaul.

Aberdeen administrators also use the Custom Course Tool in SafeSchools Training to deliver their employee handbook and district-specific policies.

Now the district can rest assured they are meeting required mandates, increasing efficiency, and saving valuable time and money. We applaud Kaul and everyone at Aberdeen for their success with SafeSchools Training. Keep up the great work!
