23
Mediation
  • An adult model for resolving problems.
  • Conflicts happen in every age and in every place.
    We believe that learning to get along is a
    powerful lesson for life.
  • Types of Mediation
  • Teacher
  • Counselor
  • School resource officer (SRO)
  • Administrator

24
How Mediation Works
  • A student seeks resolution to a potential
    conflict.
  • That student is given the option of what type of
    mediation he or she wishes to use.
  • The other party in the potential conflict is
    contacted and given the option of engaging in
    mediation.
  • The mediation is held and the resolution is
    created.

25
What happens if either party does not live up to
the bargain?
  • Conflicts become violations of Policy 8200.
  • No warnings.
  • The violation will be in a major category ie.
    insubordination, harassment, etc.
  • Physical violence will be prosecuted. There is
    no acceptable level of physical violence in our
    society or our school.

26
Our Students Are Winners!
  • Our students are the best! 90 of our students
    are never sent to the office for discipline.
  • More than 50 of those who make a poor choice are
    only sent one time!

27
Our Students are Winners!
  • Each year our school raises thousands of dollars
    for Relay for Life and other causes close to our
    school family from Middle School fundraising
    efforts. Kids often promote ideas!
