3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
    Passage of HB 3171 requires an increase in services provided by WVCPD to include not only the 24,619 professional employees but also the 13,909 service personnel not currently served by WVCPD programs. This bill includes a three hour training module for all employees on safe schools issues, as well as the Jason Flatt Act of 2011 also introduced in HB 2889. This increase in services will require two additional full time employees (one for each program) to ensure development, planning, scheduling, implementation, and reporting. Implementation will require costs in curriculum development and consultation with experienced professionals. Face to face professional development for train-the-trainer and as requested will require added financial support. Some of the support costs for this bill will be absorbed by WVCPD's current professional development sessions.
