What Happens When We Follow the Recommendations of the Safe Schools Initiative?

In 2004, the US Secret Service published the Safe Schools’ Initiative as a resource to help schools prevent school shootings and address targeted violence on campus.  A few of the program development recommendations included Assessment of the School’s Emotional Climate, a focus on Building Trusting Relationships, and an overall effort to establish a Mechanism to Sustain Safe Schools.  In this session, participants will learn how John Vandenburgh, a former Safe Schools administrator, followed the recommendations outlined in the Initiative. He not only created safer schools, he also developed an Evidenced Based Program Model that was found to increase attendance rates and academic scores!

From Victim to Defender: Teaching Students to Combat Bullying

Research has consistently demonstrated that bullying in schools is a global problem. It threatens students’ well-being everywhere. The issue, however, is identifying how many of these incidents constitute bullying, versus simply conflict or poor social skills. Many times, students are left without the social skills to solve simple conflict which eventually leads to bullying. To address this issue, students need to be equipped with the skills to advocate for their own well-being. This session focuses on teaching students to identify what is bullying and what is natural conflict. Participants will learn how to teach students to advocate for themselves, find solutions, or seek help without being a labeled snitch. Participants will engage in discussion about methods to identify bullies and victims of bullying, how to lead students in instruction to prevent bullying, and how to empower all students to act as defenders rather than victims. At the end of this session, participants will develop a school-wide plan for teaching students to identify conflict, identify instances of bullying, and identify higher order social emotional skills to prevent “conflict” from becoming bullying. Emphasis is placed on the prediction and prevention of conflict rather than the traditional reactive approach to bullying.
