Topics will include:
§ Developing staff training that meets the State requirements.
§ Discussing procedures for consistent reporting of, and responding to incidents of discrimination and harassment.
§ Creating a pro-active performance culture in which school adults model positive, supportive behaviors.
§ Reviewing direct instruction options for teaching students about civility, character education and citizenship.
§ Concerns of DAC’s, such as liability and establishing procedures that are thorough and manageable.
There is no charge for this session. Participants are encouraged to bring lunch and beverages.
