San Diego, California – Good School Tools announced today that School ID Cards and Photos version 4.0.0, will include information on every student ID for the National and Local Suicide Prevention Hotlines, the Crisis Text Line, and Campus Police.
Governor Brown of California signed SB 972 (authored by Senator Anthony Portantino) into law in September 2018 to address the increase of student suicides by mandating Suicide Lifeline information be included on every student ID card. This law goes into effect July 1, 2019. Good School Tools has responded by putting the mandated National and Local Suicide Prevention Hotline numbers on every ID card. Good School Tools also includes the Crisis Text Line number and local Campus Police contact information.
Tim Walton of Good School Tools said: “We are appalled by the increase in teen suicides. School ID provides the perfect means to impact this problem by providing IDs right on a student’s smart phone. We hope students will take advantage of the hotline and crisis information available right on their phones to reach out to the help they need. School ID is already in use in Los Angeles and NYC schools. We are aware that other states have begun legislation to require student IDs and to include Lifeline information on those IDs. School ID is priced at $199/yr/school so that as many schools as possible can benefit from the use of the app. We have also partnered with a number of school photographers who provide student photo IDs as a part of their normal services. We hope to see more partnerships evolve so that we may help safeguard our students.”
