Safe School Climate: Making the Invisible Visible
Up to 13.25 CEUs and Graduate Credit Available!
Safe School Climate: Making the Invisible Visible is a two-day event designed to focus attention on facets of school or classroom climate that are often overlooked. Sessions examine how to address the needs of underrepresented populations, reduce cliques, make school climate visible through assessment, and begin to look beneath the surface of student mental health, homeless youth, and alternative education.
On May 8th there are three pre-conference sessions that examine ways to address issues of diversity, reduce the influence of student cliques, and teach adults and kids to navigate bullying and subtle non-inclusion.
May 9th will include a Keynote address and afternoon workshops focused on areas of school climate. The keynote speaker is Kim John Payne, M.Ed., who is an expert on Social Inclusion and Bullying Prevention, and founder of the Center for Social Sustainability in Massachusetts.
Mr. Payne is also providing a free community presentation May 8th on the topic of Simplicity Parenting.
Examples of workshops include: Signs and Symptoms of Student Mental Health, The Hurt Within: Youth and Self-Injury, Laws and Logistics of Homeless Youth, Assessing School Climate, Peer Mediation Programs, School Climate Initiatives, and student panels on topics such as Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Issues; Alternative Education; and Peer Mentoring.
