FACILITATING CONFERENCES FOR SCHOOLS & COMMUNITIES

While school community personnel may have been trained to facilitate Community Conferences for incidents of serious harm such as bullying, assaults, persistent disruption, property damage & truancy, there may be occasions when using an independent facilitator may be a distinct advantage in the wake of a particularly contentious incident or issue.
