A Better Way

Keeping all students safe starts way before a crisis happens.

  • It starts with providing educators with training, resources, practice, and options. 

  • It requires a focus not on behaviors, but on the underlying issues causing behaviors. 

  • It involves a mindset shift about students who are behaving in undesired ways.  They need help, co-regulation, supportive adults, skill development, and practice.

  • It requires that every student have a secure relationship with multiple adults in the building who see them for the great kid that they are even when they're having a hard time.

  • Students whose needs are being met, who feel safe, and who have the skills to handle the demands of school do not act aggressively and hurt others.
