Arts in Action Community Charter Schools Youth Suicide Prevention Policy - (AB 1767) and (AB 2246)
This policy is written to comply with AB 1767, which states that a policy addressing suicide prevention in kindergarten and grades 1-6, inclusive, adopt and update as prescribed, a policy on suicide prevention that addressed the needs of high-risk groups. The policy is to be age appropriate and is discussed and delivered in a manner that is sensitive to the needs of young students. Additionally, this policy expands on the previously existing law (AB 2246), which require a local educational agency that serves students grades 7-12, inclusive, to adopt a policy on pupil suicide prevention that specifically addresses the needs of high-risk groups.
