Virtual (Online)


A student comes to you and says that he doesn’t feel safe because one of his classmate’s is wearing a tee shirt that says MAGA on it.

A parent calls you to tell you that a teacher in your building has posted on Facebook that they support Black Lives Matter and they want you to assure them that the teacher is not saying or doing anything in the classroom that supports BLM since it is a political organization.

A parent wants you to ban students from wearing shirts that say, “Defund the Police” since her husband is a police officer, and this is so upsetting to her daughter that she can’t focus on her schoolwork.

So now what do you do?  What can you do? What should you do?

Given the current social climate, you should have a plan in mind before you get too far into your school year.  In this session, we will discuss Federal law connected to the first amendment, how that applies to your school. Dress code restrictions and District policy.  Discipline enforcement.  When is speech harmful?  What is a material or substantial disruption?  We will move from the establishment of an authoritarian disciplinary response to the utilization of restorative practices in order to maintain a respectful and sophisticated dialogue that all may benefit from.
