Keenan Recognizes Alameda County Schools Insurance Group for Commitment to Safety and One-Millionth SafeSchools Training Course Completion

TORRANCE, Calif. – June 1, 2015 – Keenan, the largest privately held insurance brokerage and consulting firm in California, has announced hitting the one-millionth course completion milestone in its Keenan SafeSchools online training program. The firm recently recognized the Alameda County Schools Insurance Group (ACSIG) joint powers authority, whose membership completed the one-millionth course.

The JPA and its Executive Director, Kimberly Dennis, were presented by Keenan with a certificate of achievement along with a check for $5,000 on May 21, 2015, at the facilities of the Alameda County Office of Education in Hayward, Calif. The presentation also recognized the office’s ongoing dedication to safety.

“As educators and administrators, the safety of our staff and students is a paramount priority for all of us,” Dennis said. “It’s an issue that impacts not only the health and well-being of the people involved, but minimizing potential financial and legal liabilities as well. The Keenan SafeSchools resources are an integral part of that effort.”
Keenan SafeSchools, the firm’s comprehensive online safety training and tracking system designed specifically for education agency employees, was introduced in 2008 with 80 online courses. Today, the program offers 207 courses that provide public agencies with important resources for training employees in areas of safety and compliance. Included in the Keenan SafeSchools suite is a Mandated Reporter training course that offers school districts a turnkey solution in compliance with the training mandate of AB 1432 which went into effective Jan. 1, 2015.

“Keenan is proud of the Alameda County Schools Insurance Group and all their member districts who care deeply about the safety of their employees and their students,” said John Stephens, Senior Vice President and Property & Casualty Practice Leader for Keenan. “And we are very gratified that a million Keenan SafeSchools training course completions have now been achieved by proactive school districts across the state of California.”
