Proactive Alternatives to Suspension
This workshop is designed to shine a light on the disproportionality in school discipline with students of color and special education students. The purpose of this workshop is to help educators understand the positive impact of creating effective behavior systems in schools that are equitable for ALL students and learn how to use alternatives to suspensions effectively. An alternative discipline overview will be provided using the Don’t Suspend Me! (DSM) framework for designing discipline using restorative, reflective, and instructional methods of supports.

The Five Critical Steps to Becoming a Trauma Responsive School
This session will teach the participants the “how to” in becoming a Trauma Responsive School. Learn the basic concepts to implementing a trauma-responsive school culture that will foster the significant changes we want for every student… improved behavior, attendance, higher academic achievement and higher graduation rates. Participants will: • Look at what the current research is telling us about the impact our traditional disciplinary practices are having on our students. • Understand the difference between “doing trauma informed practices,” versus “embracing trauma responsive practices as who we are as a person, as a school, and how we interact with those we come into contact.”  • See how a trauma-responsive approach is the umbrella that becomes your school culture and strengthens everything under it. •Be introduced to the Student of Concerns Model: a powerful system for tracking our most struggling students with intentional positive adult interventions and action plans. •Walk away with an understanding of what it takes to become trauma responsive, and how to begin experiencing the significant outcomes that naturally come with this new mindset.

Understanding and Supporting Students with Challenging Behavior: School-wide.
Supporting students with challenging behavior is complicated and requires a school-wide effort. Schools and students benefit when all staff are trained in the basics of understanding behavior and behavioral intervention. Training all staff creates a common language and skill set across administrators, teachers and staff for supporting students with challenging behavior. Schools also need personnel with more intensive training in behavioral intervention to support students with challenging behavior. This session will present a training model and free training resources (Basic FBA to BIP), including e-learning modules to help build the knowledge and skills of your staff to support students with challenging behavior.
