From the Desk of Starmayne Mackie
I wanted to share a few items with you as we rap up this week. Last week, I attended a two day work shop; Positive Crisis Intervention (PCI). Several staff members in our building have had this training. The main focus is to use a more positive approach when dealing with a student who is having a crisis moment or episode. Several of our students have a crisis plan. If you teach a student who has a BIP, they could have a crisis plan. If they do, please read it so you will know what you or others who will assist you should do in a crisis situation, (ex. a student becoming upset and leaving the building threating to walk home). Usually the counselors, or social worker along with an administrator are included in a crisis plan. The resource officer can also be included. If you feel a student needs a crisis plan due to sever behavior, feel free to add one. I have examples if you need to see one.
Reminder: Department meeting tomorrow 2/10/16. Please be on time, we have a lot to cover. I will also have some sweet treats for my favorite Valentines. J
