Alternative to Out of School Suspension (ATOSS)
A suspension amnesty program for students who are serious offenders or the chronic offender who seems to violate the rules frequently. With ATOSS the student remains in a supervised setting thus eliminating the possibility for community misbehavior or personal injury. Academic involvement is maintained and the student's behavior, not the student is the focus of the consequence.
Family Support Services (FSS)
These programs are designed to help parents be as effective and nurturing as possible, in the face of challenges such as trauma, grief, a history of neglect or abuse, substance abuse, mental illness, poverty, inadequate housing, or a lack of social support.
Bullying Prevention Programs for School and the Workplace
Increase initial awareness by bringing the problem of bullying to the surface and foster empathy by focusing student, staff, employee and employer attention on the feelings of all participants in bullying;
implement policies that create nurture pro-social behavior; foster skill development in which perpetrators, victims and bystanders are targeted with a wide array of social skills training;
Peer Warning Program
In almost all known instances of school violence, the perpetrator has conveyed his violent intentions to peers or peers have become cognizant of possible danger. As the following example illustrate, peers’ sharing of such information with adult authorities has resulted in the avoidance of violent acts such as: Hoyt, Kansas where an anonymous tip from a student came in via the school's hot line with information about a plot by three high school students. The three students were arrested. At their homes, police found an AK-47 assault rifle, 400 rounds of ammunition, bomb-making materials, bomb recipe books, a drawing of the school's floor plan with spots marked for the explosives, and white supremacist and Nazi drawings.
In many instances, peers who discover information about possible violent acts do not share it with authorities. That's where our program comes in and we educate children on the importance of sharing this information with an Adult, teacher, security, police or a peer leader. We train students to be leaders, where they can get help, how to share this information and that it is okay to tell.
