Moreton & Company, Idaho School Boards Association Collaborate to Help
Provide SafeSchools.com to all School Districts in Idaho
Cincinnati, OH — September 28th, 2009 – Moreton & Company, the leading
provider of property & liability insurance coverage for school districts in Idaho,
and the Idaho School Boards Association (ISBA) have come together to help
provide the SafeSchools.com online training system to school districts across the
state of Idaho. Many Idaho school districts have already successfully
implemented online safety training with the SafeSchools program.
“It is sometimes difficult to determine the types of safety courses to offer districtwide
that meet the needs of all personnel, but SafeSchools fits the bill,” says
Sanie Baker of the Minidoka County School District. “Whether it is new
information or a review, our staff appreciates the variety of topics offered. Even
though our district has participated in this program for several years, we have
found the information to be updated and relevant.”
One of the many benefits of online training is the amount of time that can be
saved each year. School districts can easily stay compliant with annual training
requirements and still have time to expand into other important issues. This can
prove to be extremely valuable when it comes to risk management and loss
control.
“Moreton & Company is always looking for ways to provide our clients with
exceptional, yet cost-effective risk management solutions. SafeSchools is an
ideal choice for the school districts we serve because they have a proven track
record for enhancing safety and compliance training for school staff members”
reports Allan Ranstrom, Senior Vice President of Moreton & Company.
In addition to the benefits that are inherent with online training, teachers also
have the opportunity to earn professional development credit through an
affiliation with Idaho State University.
SafeSchools serves over 1,600 districts across the country and has formed
partnerships with an increasing number of insurance and workers’ compensation
providers in the K12 market.
“Your training program is only as good as your content,” says Brian Taylor, CEO
of Scenario Learning, publisher of SafeSchools. “Our continued success is
largely attributable to working with nationally-renowned expert authors to publish
courses that are 100% school-focused.”
SafeSchools (www.safeschools.com) is a product of Scenario Learning, a
publishing company in Cincinnati, Ohio specializing in safety, health and
compliance resources. Other Scenario Learning programs include SafeColleges,
SchoolMSDS, and the LiveTip anonymous tip line.
