MNW CSD Jan 2 2019 Creating A Safe and Supportive School (In Distrist NCCS) (8228)


While we were involved in the education of residental students we were informed that certain biographical information could not be shared with the staff for the fear was that our professional teaching staff would attempt to do "therapy" with the students. We were just looking for information so we would not be the cause of trauma in the student's life. We were on our own to figure it out.

Now comes the information we all have been looking for. Some of this will be repeatitive as we have picked up bits and pieces as we've struggled to understand the behaviors our students have been exhibiting on our classrooms. The review has benefits especially as we wrap that learning into the understanding of new concepts. 

We should all walk away with a new prespective on why students do the negative things that they do. Not only for understanding, but what we can do about those behaviors and teach our students self regulation.


Participants will be able to develop a school-wide plan to create a trauma responsive school with a safe and respectful environment. Within this environment students will be able to build positive relationships with both staff and peers. This positive learning environment will allow for students to experiment with their own self-regulation of behaviors and emotions, succeed academically in a safe environment while finding the balance in their life between the physical, intellectual, and spiritual realms.

How do I change my credit option once I've registered?

Change of Credit by Participant Prior to Beginning of an Activity:

If you have already registered for an activity and the activity has not started, please contact the registrar to change credit type.  All additional fees must be paid immediately.   A $10.00 service fee will be charged if a refund is due to participant.

Change of Credit by Participant during the Activity:

If an activity is in progress and a participant would like to change credit type, please contact the registrar by email to request a change in credit type.  All additional fees must be paid immediately.   A $10.00 service fee will be charged if a refund is due to participant.  This must be completed before the final class/learning team meeting.  A change of credit to No Credit option is considered a withdrawal.

Change of Credit by Participant after the Activity Has Ended:

Once an activity is finished, credit type becomes permanent.  You cannot request a change in credit type nor will any refunds be given.


What must I do to withdraw from a class?

Withdrawal (cancellation) by Participant Prior to Beginning of an Activity:

To withdraw (cancel an activity registration) and request a refund, please contact Registrar up to two weeks before the start of the activity.  Two options are available: (1) the registration fee will be refunded or (2) registration fee may be transferred to another activity.  Additional fees due for new activity must be received before registration will be transferred. 


Withdrawal (cancellation) by Participant after the Start of the activity:

To withdraw (cancellation) after the start of an activity, please contact Registrar immediately.  Note that registration and materials fees will be forfeited.  No refunds will be given.  Failure to officially withdraw from a course will be treated as non-attendance and a failing grade will be assigned. 


In an emergency situation which necessitates dropping a class after it has started, it is the discretion of the Associate Director of PD to approve refund or allow transfer of fees to another activity.  In this case, a written request must be made with appropriate documentation two weeks prior to the end of the activity.


What happens when classes get cancelled?









PLAEA reserves the right to cancel any class that does not have sufficient enrollment.  Course cancelations will be made approximately 2 weeks prior to the start date of the class.  
Registered participants will be notified and two options will be made available:
  1. the registration fee will be refunded or
  2. the registration fee can be transferred to another class within two weeks.


Why can't I access the end-of-class evaluation?

The three most common reasons for difficulty accessing an evaluation survey are . . .
  1. The URL link appears on two lines in the email and is "broken."  If this seems to be the case, copy and paste the entire URL address into your browser and try again.  If this does not work, . . .
  2. The class may have already been processed and archived, which means the survey is also archived and no longer accessible. This will usually occur 3-4 weeks after the class has ended.
  3. The browser you are using might be an older version and needs updating. Click on the gray System Requirements tab found on the Avatar pre-login Home page for what browsers work the best.
