HEAR for High School Administrators
The Need is Clear
As a senior school administrator, the buck stops with you when it comes to the success of your school – which includes, importantly, ensuring the safety of your faculty, your staff and the students themselves. We understand the difficulties you face in meeting the disparate needs, concerns and challenges of each of these constituencies, as well as your responsibility to parents, government officials, business leaders and others in your community. All of these stakeholders rely on your judgment and performance in making your school’s environment a safe, inclusive and ultimately productive one.
Challenges Are Mounting
Bullying compromises that environment in a host of ways that exert pressure on you and your staff. From continuous demands to improve documented performance metrics to the threat of legal liability stemming from widespread or even isolated incidences of this dangerous and destructive behavior, meeting the challenges of bullying in your school is often front and center in your mind. And the message is clear from legislators, parents and the broader community itself – address this problem now.
Yet, despite this unified call for action, few of these government decrees, mandated policies or community initiatives provide a clear direction for actively engaging students, and the vast majority fail to provide adequate funding to actually do something to address bullying. Today’s school administrators are faced with a growing slate of responsibilities and a reduced level of hands-on resources and financial backing to meet these growing demands.
A Solution You Can Trust
We can help. The HEAR for High Schools bullying prevention program provides you with a readily available solution to combat bullying in your school. Founded on extensive academic research conducted by nationally renowned subject matter experts at Making Caring Common, a project of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, HEAR for High Schools informs and educates today’s high school students on bullying and the countervailing principles of respectful behavior.
The integrity of HEAR for High Schools is above reproach. You can rest assured that when you choose the HEAR Team to help combat bullying, our program will be delivered to your students by trained members of the National Guard in alignment with the Guard’s core principles and reputation for serving, protecting and defending our communities. And HEAR draws upon Career Training Concepts’ decades of experience developing and delivering education programs, including presenting the Career Direction – now Career Direction 2 – high school guidance programs to more than five million students.
Metrics You Can Use
Unlike many other bullying prevention programs, the efficacy of HEAR for High Schools is backed by the hard data you need to gauge school climate, plan for improvements, and document accountability compliance. The HEAR for High School program offers the option to participate in Making Caring Common’s Caring Schools Initiative, which provides access to survey tools and resources that prevent bullying behaviors.
No Cost to Schools
HEAR for High Schools is available for delivery to your students at no cost whatsoever to your school. All the materials required – the interactive classroom presentations, the student workbooks, artwork for posters and banners, educator and parent guides, etc. – are purchased and delivered by the Guard. There is no training for your counselors or teachers to undergo, no commitment of time to learn or conduct lesson plans – all they need to do is schedule the sessions themselves.
