Good Afternoon,

Next week, the OPI will provide a Press Release to announce the Superintendent’s selection of the Committee Members for Negotiated Rulemaking for the Suicide Prevention and Response. The Committee will provide a recommendation to Superintendent Arntzen to amend ARM 10.55.701, requiring a policy on suicide prevention programs in schools, and will consult on the preparation of an economic impact statement for the amendment.  Please watch for the Press Release and news of the Committee’s progress, and forward the information to interested parties. Please contact Linda Vrooman Peterson ( or 406-444-5726) or Rehanna Olson ( or 444-3114) for more information.


Thank you.
