STATE MANDATE - Cost
The amendment makes two changes it: (1) adds youth suicide to the material contained in the training component of the underlying bill, which is not anticipated to result in a fiscal impact, and (2) requires local and regional boards of education to offer in-service training on youth suicide and school bullying. Requiring local and regional boards of education to offer in-service training could result in a minimal cost to districts. If districts are able to utilize existing staff to provide the training, there would be no additional cost. However, if a district hires a consultant to provide the training it is anticipated that the half-day expense could be up to $500.
