    If you missed this year's face-to-face training, contact this department for the next training date. Until then, complete the ID Canvas course.

  • PREVENTION LIAISON TRAINING

    The District’s comprehensive Anti-Bullying Policy 5.9 helps to ensure all of BCPS students feel safe and respected while attending school. Key to this goal is the Policy’s requirement that each and every school have a Prevention Liaison or PL. Each year, principals designate their school's PL.

    The Prevention Liaison is responsible for the dissemination of prevention curriculum related to the strands of prevention such as diversity, violence prevention, substance abuse prevention, instructional strategies, health and wellness, as well as MTSS Academic and Behavioral Supports. The Prevention Liaisons receive yearly face to face trainings administered by this department. Contact our department if you have any questions.

  • SUPPORT GROUP METHOD OF INTERVENTION

    Support Group Method  The Support Group Method (SGM) of Bullying Intervention does not replace, but complements a school’s anti-bullying policy and code of conduct discipline matrix. The SGM bullying intervention is an easily utilized tool that can be embedded into your school-wide efforts in a sustainable way. Incorporate SGM into school safety teams or have it used by individuals such as school counselors, peer counseling teachers, administrators, or before/after school care workers.

    The success of any intervention method relies on effective training, fidelity of process, school-wide integration, documentation, and evaluation. So if your school is interested in being trained on SGM, watch the SGM Instructional video and contact us for further information.
