NJ SAFE SCHOOLS MANDATORY TRAINING

This year we will continue the mandatory professional development trainings through the online portal called NJ Safe Schools.

The link to access the online portal is as follows: http://bcsssd.nj.safeschools.com

The username for each staff member is their district email address.

The expectation is that these trainings will be completed by each staff member prior to October 31, 2015. Mid-year hires are expected to complete the mandatory trainings within 60 days of their start date.

At the conclusion of each course, there will be a short multiple choice quiz. After successfully completing the quiz with a score of 80% or greater, the staff member will be able to print out a certificate of completion, which they can print and upload into the Genesis Employee Portal.

*Incident reports are legal documents, and have the potential to become court documents. Please remember to do a spelling and grammar check.

Other Notes:
