In order to consolidate and improve their safety programming, Teton County School District #1 in Jackson, WY is using the EmployeeSafe and StudentWatch suites. Also, Teton County School District #1 is the first district in Wyoming to use StudentWatch’s Student Behavior Management System to report and track both positive and negative student behaviors.
“EmployeeSafe’s ability to manage our training digitally, be more deliberate in our expectations of employees and reinforce training deadlines is what initially attracted us to PublicSchoolWORKS,” said Brad Barker, COO of Teton County School District #1. “The additional EmployeeSafe safety management modules such as Compliance Task Manager, made us see how beneficial it can be to our district. We also liked StudentWatch’s ability to provide consistency in student safety matters, as well as the ability to remain FERPA-compliant because of tiered access to student reports. Both suites will provide consistency district-wide and make sure we’re in compliance.”
Prior to using PublicSchoolWORKS, Teton County School District #1’s staff and student safety programming was cobbled together from different programs and content providers. However, much of it – such as the online staff training – lacked tracking and management functions. For student safety matters, the district was also using multiple programs – one for student behavior reporting and one for student accidents and health records. These systems made it cumbersome to effectively manage student behavioral and safety concerns.
With EmployeeSafe and StudentWatch, Teton County School District #1 streamlined processes by eliminating these various other programs while also improving the tracking and management of all compliance requirements.
