Establishing boundaries is critical for educational staff to protect their reputation and provide a comfortable learning environment where students can flourish.
At Halpern & Scrom, we train faculty and staff in private schools, charter schools, and early childhood centers regarding student boundaries. We help our clients manage reputational risks and assist with community communications associated with student boundary issues.
As education inches towards digital platforms, well-intended actions are increasingly at risk of being misconstrued. We help educate clients on proper electronic communications with the student body.
Regardless of whether they are involved in an issue, there are state and local laws that require most educational staff to report child abuse and neglect incidents. We assist our clients in complying with mandatory reporter requirements in applicable jurisdictions.
Without adequate staff training on boundaries, educational employees can overstep boundaries with students either deliberately or unintentionally. Proper training over boundary issues, can protect an educational institution from undue risk. Halpern & Scrom can provide counseling on sensitive issues that arise from incidents involving student boundaries
