Addressing HIB Claims and Discipline for Students With Disabilities

Ensuring a safe learning environment and protecting the due process rights of students with disabilities are critical obligations for all school districts. This course is designed to help school officials work through the complex maze of state and federal statutes, regulations and case law related to addressing HIB claims and discipline for students with disabilities.The course is organized into four modules. Module 1 provides an overview of Federal law addressing student discipline. Module 2 highlights key aspects of Federal and New Jersey law regarding bullying. Module 3 includes a variety of supplemental resource materials. Finally, Module 4 ensures that participants have mastered the content of this course with a multiple-choice assessment.

Child Abuse Prevention

Ensuring the safety and well-being of all students is the most important responsibility for all school district employees. This course will empower you to better understand the definitions of abuse, statistics about how often it happens, what is known about both victims and perpetrators, steps to prevent abuse, and finally, legal requirements about what to do when you suspect abuse has occurred.

The first section of the course covers the topics of physical and emotional abuse and neglect. The second section of the course focuses specifically on the topic of child sexual abuse, as much of the research, statistics, and strategies to stop sexual abuse are distinct from other types of abuse. Supplemental documents are provided in order to reinforce the information discussed. Finally, participants will be asked to complete an online assessment to ensure understanding of essential content.

Getting to the Truth: A Toolkit for Conducting Effective Student Investigations

How do we assess the credibility of witnesses with conflicting stories? What are the most effective questioning strategies? How do we analyze written statements?
