HEAR for Middle 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 limited level of hands-on resources and financial backing to meet these growing demands.
A Solution You Can Trust
The HEAR for Middle Schools bullying prevention program provides you with a readily available solution to your increasingly urgent need 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 and aligned with Common Core State Standards, HEAR for Middle Schools informs and educates today’s middle school students on bullying and the countervailing principles of respectful behavior and personal responsibility.
In addition, the efficacy of HEAR for Middle Schools is supported by Student Survey data compiled from an optional participation in Making Caring Common’s Student Survey, which provides valuable survey tools and resources to schools that help improve ongoing bullying prevention efforts. And HEAR draws upon Career Training Concepts’ decades of experience developing and delivering education programs, including the Career Direction – now Career Direction 2 – high school guidance programs to more than five million students.
Affordable Funding Options
Finally, we know the resource and time limitations you face in today’s middle school environment. HEAR for Middle Schools is available as a stand-alone curriculum package, a fully delivered service or through a variety of curriculum materials and teacher training solutions. HEAR is offered at a relatively low cost-per-student, with a wide range of staffing and funding options available, depending on school resources, local or national sponsorships, education grants and other financing opportunities.
