Suicide Prevention Efforts
NKC Schools works diligently to prevent student suicide. This is an on-going process that includes education and awareness. The ultimate goal is to ensure a safe, supportive environment for all students, creating school environments that provide the help they need.
A districtwide protocol is followed when a student makes any statements threatening to harm themselves or others. All of our school sites have certified counselors, with 18 district social workers also assigned to support our schools. High school students are instructed about the risks and screening of students through the "Signs of Suicide" program, and we partner closely with both Tri-County Mental Health Services - including an on-site clinician - and Synergy Services to provide mental health resources to our students. Additionally, many staff members have received training in Mental Health First Aid. We continue to partner with districts around the state, and agencies in the area, to provide a wide-reaching library of services to students and families.
Also, students have been encouraged to report any concerns (including peers threatening suicide) to a trusted adult at school and/or anonymously through Text-a-Tip.
