A program for Town Academy leaders at AISNE member schools


Session One  | Wednesday, February 2, 2022 | 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. EST

Boundaries Training: Promoting Healthy Adult-Student Relationships

Pictured: Susan Schorr & Brian B. Garrett

Join Attorneys Brian Garrett and Susan Schorr, Vice Chairs of McLane Middleton’s Education Law Group, for a lively and interactive webinar discussion about the importance of maintaining healthy boundaries between students and adults in K-12 schools. Appropriately nurturing relationships between faculty, staff and students are key components to a successful educational experience; inappropriately close relationships have the opposite effect and can be devastating for the youth involved and the school community as a whole. This workshop will help educators understand how to foster relationships at school that prioritize the needs of students, recognize the early signs of boundary crossings and violations, address situations when boundary violations occur, and review mandated reporting guidance and requirements when serious misconduct is a concern.  Brian and Susan will discuss various scenarios, pulled from the headlines and their own practice, to stimulate conversation about the behavioral standards schools should have in place to inspire faculty and staff to be positive and supportive role models for students.

All K-12 educators are warmly welcome to attend this session, as the topic is applicable to all school types. This session is available standalone for $39/pp (1-2 participants), or $29/pp (3+ participants).
Register for only this session.
