Event Details

It has never been more challenging to mitigate loss to disease, consider how best to meet the needs of students, and use data to make decisions as an educator, administrator, and parent than right now. Obviously, in the midst of a pandemic, we are all concerned about Covid-19, but in South Dakota where have twice the suicide rate for our youth than the national average we also need to be testing for suicide risk just as we are of Covid-19. The data in South Dakota is clear diseases such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse have been preying on our students as suicide is the second leading cause of death to our students. By and large, suicide presents a greater risk to our students than Covid. Covid mitigation strategies need to be considered in light of these realities or “our solutions” might not only increase the loss of students and but undermine their education and development. Clearly, we do not live in an either-or reality.

So what’s a school, a teacher and a parent to do manage this risk in light of our current realities? Join us for this special online discussion and earn CEU credits at the same time!
