Keenan SafeSchools Surpasses 5 Million Course Completions, Garners Congressional Recognition

January 17, 2019

Keenan is proud to announce a significant milestone in its Keenan SafeSchools program: participation in Keenan SafeSchools has now exceeded 5 million total course completions, including 1.5 million trainings for mandated reporter requirements. In addition, a large portion of these course completions – over 2 million – have been completed in the last 18 months, demonstrating the incredible growth and momentum of this innovative program.

Keenan SafeSchools is an online safety training and tracking system designed specifically for school employees. Launched in 2008, the system brings all training documentation into one database, which helps Keenan clients certify that employees have been trained on important mandated safety issues.

The achievement of these important milestones in keeping kids safe has not gone unnoticed. Last month, Keenan received a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition from the office of Rep. Mimi Walters (CA-45) stating, “Thank you for providing these services to ensure the safety of our student generation. Best wishes for your future success as you continue to protect our schools.”

As an adjunct to the customized, on-site training programs conducted by the firm’s Loss Control Department, Keenan SafeSchools offers more than 260 scenario-based training courses that deliver safety and compliance training to Keenan clients in a convenient and flexible online program.

In addition to the Keenan SafeSchools training, the firm provides an online School Safety Center with a range of in-depth resources that schools can tap to better protect students, staff and their communities while enhancing a safe environment for children to learn and prosper. The site offers complimentary access to best practices, tools and training courses to help districts achieve their school safety goals.

All of us at Keenan want to thank and congratulate the hundreds of school districts across California that have adopted the Keenan SafeSchools program to provide their teams with ongoing safety and compliance training. Together, we are helping to make schools a safer place for our students, staff and communities.
