Required and Recommended Student and Staff Training

Resources for Implementation and Differentiation Purpose:

To provide a comprehensive list of required and recommended trainings, with aligned resources, to assist district and building administrators in providing robust and meaningful professional development related to these essential topics.

Why:

Needs for required training very greatly, based on a staff member’s role and level of experience. One time annual trainings often become routine and employ a one-size-fits-all implementation model. It is important for districts and schools to possess differentiated resources that can be utilized to meet a range of training needs.

How?

Effective professional development is timely, needs based, integrated, and appeals to a variety of learning styles. Utilizing a two-tier system of support framework; all staff and students need exposure to REQUIRED content, some staff will need more advanced training, and few staff will require intensive training. This site provides resources that can be utilized to enhance and differentiate required trainings for each level of need.

What is bullying?

Bullying is aggressive behavior that is intentional and that involves an imbalance of power or strength. Typically, it is repeated over time. A child who is being bullied has a hard time defending himself or herself. Bullying can take many forms, such as

  • hitting or punching (physical bullying);
  • teasing or namecalling (verbal bullying);
  • intimidation using gestures or social exclusion (nonverbal bullying or emotional bullying); and
  • sending insulting messages by e-mail (cyberbullying).
