Due to the growing concerns and recommendations in coordinated efforts to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, we have decided to postpone the workshop you are scheduled to attend on Monday, March 16th. We’ve communicated with several registrants and some expressed reservations about attending under the current circumstances but also how they would be disappointed if they weren’t able to attend this workshop at some point in the near future. Therefore, we are going to postpone the workshop to a later date in hopes that the coordinated efforts to contain the spread of the virus are effective enough to resume normal practices and activities within a few weeks. We are currently coordinating with the DoubleTree hotel to reschedule the workshop date. Once a new date is finalized, you will be the first to know, which should be by the end of next week.
COLUMBIA (SC) WORKSHOP - OVERVIEW
Throughout the country, educators feel that their hands are tied when it comes to addressing students with challenging behavior in our schools. Schools are challenged daily with students exhibiting behavior that negatively impact the learning environment. In most cases, they are limited to only some type of traditional exclusionary consequence such as in-school suspension or out-of-school suspension. They are assigning traditional consequences but the disruptive behaviors that have an adverse effect on the learning environment continue to persist. The limitations of traditional consequences leave schools feeling helpless because they only focus on deterring disruptive behavior rather than working to change the behavior.
Educators are often finding themselves in a quandary when dealing with adverse behavior in school. With federal and state pushes to reduce and, in some cases, eliminate suspensions, schools are feeling helpless when it comes to ensuring they can maintain a safe and secure learning environment. This training will provide participants with concrete strategies that will empower them to shift from assigning suspensions when a student compromises the learning. These alternatives focus on how schools can still hold students accountable along with an intentional focus on changing the adverse behavior.
