Schools and teachers must be capiable of protecting their students. It is not amatter of choice. Under the law, schools assume the role of guardian or parent. It is criminal for a school or parent to fail to protect its children. The responsibility can not be defered to the police. School staff must be capiable to protect its students. The parent child relationship is the most important bond we have. As a culture if we fail to meet that obligation the consequences are far reaching.
School staff are in the middle of the action every day. Deviant behavior can be found in many forms in the school placing school staff in situations that are unique. With the care giver status a high standard for control exists. How can this happen without proper training and management? The level of control can be from presence of one or more staff, communication, physical control and even the use of weapons in the worst case. Avoiding is a primary strategy but not to the level of abandoning a child.
We offer a specialized program synthsized from several professional disiplines. For most teachers and staff a two day program is recommened at minimum with a frequency of in house training appropriate to the environment and responsiblities of the staff. Spevial education situations have unique methods needed to meet students needs and the safety of the staff.
An outline of the program can be found here.
