Oregon-Davis School Corporation staff members will be getting some training in how handle conflict situations. On Monday, the school board approved an implementation plan for the “seclusion and restraint” policy it recently adopted. According to Superintendent Don Harman, that plan includes annual training for all staff members on how to de-escalate conflict situations.
Additionally, the school board approved various policy updates, as recommended by school policy consultant NEOLA. Harman says the updates cover a range of topics, from evaluation of the superintendent to use of tobacco by administrators.
He adds that updates are normally undertaken every two years to ensure compliance with state regulations. Harman credits former interim superintendent Jim Dermody with getting the corporation back on track when it comes to getting its policies in compliance.
