Alternatives To Suspension Training (Full-Day)
Throughout the country, educators feel that their hands are tied when it comes to addressing students with challenging behaviors in our schools. In most cases, they are limited to only some type of traditional exclusionary consequence such as in-school suspension or out-of-school suspension. 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. By the end of this training, participants will understand specific alternatives to suspension that can be used in place of traditional consequences such as suspension.
