The Minnesota Department of Education School Safety Technical Assistance Center (Center) is developing a training cadre for 12 individuals in Minnesota for the McGrath Bullying and Harassment: Minimize the Risk Curriculum and certification. The courses and certification are designed to provide clear methods and procedures to meet state and federal legal requirements and offer practical tools that charter schools and districts can implement to prevent and neutralize the effects of bullying. We invite you or one of your colleagues to apply to be part of this cadre.
The Center will be offering the McGrath Bullying and Harassment training to charter schools and districts as an option to meet the staff training requirements of the Safe and Supportive Schools Act. You can find more information about the training curriculum on the Center website. This training, and the cadre, will build the capacity of the education community to intervene, respond and investigate to reports of bullying and harassment.
Applicants must be available for training at the Minnesota Department of Education in Roseville, from May 4-6th, 2016. The trainings will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. You must attend all three days, in full, to receive the certification.
Applicants must have experience and success in conducting training and/or professional development. Preference will be given to applicants who work outside of the metro area, or who have significant school or district training experience. Applicants may be independent contractors or affiliated with non-profit or for-profit organizations, training institutions or professional organizations. Applicants may be faculty members of colleges, community colleges and universities. Additional information for applicants is available on the Center website.
Only completed applications will be accepted. The application deadline is Friday, March 25th at 5 p.m. CT. Applications and reference forms are available online. Applications will be reviewed and applicants will be notified of their status in the program by April 15, 2016.
