Good afternoon,

I wanted to relay an opportunity to get trained in ASIST later this month.  I know there are some people who may need it to be able to become SafeTalk trainers in October or just have not been able to have access to a class because of COVID canceling so many trainings.  If you are willing to travel we currently have some vacancies for the class which will be held on Thursday and Friday September 30th and October 1st in Danville.  Please reach out to Amanda Furr for any questions related to the class at afurr@dpcs.org.

8:30am-4:30pm
