The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services is pleased to offer five School Leader and School Resource Officer Forums throughout the Commonwealth. The goals of these forums are to provide K-12 school administrators, law enforcement, and other school personnel an opportunity to hear national presenters speak on a variety of topics related to restorative justice, trauma informed discipline practices, threat assessment legal considerations, school climate, and the school to prison pipeline. Additionally, this provides an opportunity to collaborate with colleagues from across the Commonwealth to improve the outcomes of students.
Scheduled topics will include:
Day 1: “Available Resources and Data: How They Can Inform Restorative Justice and Alternative Discipline Practices to Better Support Students and Schools” (Various Presenters)
Day 2: “Creating Trauma Informed Schools to Reduce Suspensions and Increase Student Achievement” (Horacio Sanchez)
Day 3: “School Safety Practices: Avoiding the Legal Pitfalls of Not Staying in Your Lane” (John More)
**Day 1 and Day 3 will be switched for the forum at Blue Ridge Community College**
Participation in this training is limited to building level and division level K-12 school administrators, SROs and law enforcement supervisors, school psychologists, school social workers, guidance counselors, and school security directors/supervisors.
Law enforcement officers will receive partial in-service credit (PIC) for completion of this training.
