Cleveland Independent School District (ISD) in Cleveland, TX was experiencing some issues concerning student safety. In order to properly handle the situation and prevent incidents from reoccurring in the future, Cleveland ISD implemented PublicSchoolWORKS’ Student Bullying and Violence Prevention Program (SBVPP) and the EmployeeSafe Suite for the 2012-2013 school year.
The SBVPP provides students and parents with mechanisms to anonymously report incidents of bullying and student violence. Both the online and telephone reporting mechanisms automatically alert the designated administrators when a report is filed and prompts them as to the proper actions needed to track incidents through to resolution. The system also allows Cleveland ISD to assess which types of student safety issues are occurring in order to properly intervene and prevent the situation from occurring again.
The district uses the EmployeeSafe Suite to provide their staff with online training in order to equip them with the skills to handle these bullying and student violence incidents. The Cleveland ISD staff was educated on key issues such as suicide prevention and depression in students. The system also automatically reminds staff members of training deadlines and alerts the designated administrator when staff members do not complete training.
Both the SBVPP and the EmployeeSafe Suite are helping solve the student safety issues Cleveland ISD was experiencing and is continuing to promote a culture of safety within the district.
