Reporting Teacher Safety
Requirement: Notify your teachers
This is a basic requirement in most states and labor contracts. Stringent states, such as California, require that teachers be provided a list of their students who have been suspended or expelled, engaged in, or are reasonably suspected to have engaged in, acts of risky behavior from their previous three school years. Behavior Alert automatically does that.
Requirement: Part of School Safety Plans
In addition, many states now require that districts include the steps they are taking to notify their teachers of risky student behavior in their School Safety Plans. Behavior Alert already provides that.
Lawsuits Against School Districts
When it comes to violence in schools, districts are vulnerable to lawsuits from teachers, parents and advocacy groups. The news is full of distressing lawsuit headlines. Ensuring compliance with Behavior Alert is like giving your school district another insurance policy.
