Program description from brochure:
Maintaining a safe school environment means managing bullying, gangs, violent males and increasing female violence. Problems associated with bullying, gangs, and violence are well documented in their adverse affects on a positive learning environment. Nevertheless, many successful programs have been implemented nationwide to address these issues. Participants will be presented with overview of how these behaviors impact the social environment of the school, attendance and academic performance of students. State of the art, research-based prevention and intervention approaches will be presented in a “nuts and bolts” format. Attendees will be able to follow and implement five planning steps to improve school climate, attendance and academic achievement. Many of these interventions are valid for those working with youth in a non-school environment as well. School site teams will be able to personalize the information directly to their school site.
