Course Description

On July 24, 2000, Governor George E. Pataki signed Senate Bill 8236, also known as Project SAVE (Safe Schools Against Violence in Education). This legislation aims to create safer and more effective learning environments in New York State schools. It involves the entire community, recognizing the importance of family and school members in promoting student development. Project SAVE includes training on topics such as school behavior rules, teacher response to violence, violence predictors, problem-solving teams, student referrals, academic and behavioral strategies, and anti-bullying measures.

We have partnered with continuing education industry expert, Premiere Education, to offer the best course experience to our New York professionals.
