KNOWLEDGE IS THE BEST PROTECTION:PREVENTING & RESPONDING TO ASSAULTS BY STUDENTSAs the demands to address all of a student’s academic and emotional needs have increased, it is vitally important that all teachers are informed of their legal rights and duties related to assaults by students.In this timely workshop, you will learn:· What preventive actions you should take to protect yourself and your students before an incident occurs.· What procedures you can and should take in the event you are assaulted by a student.· What actions you are allowed to take under Connecticut law if self-defense is necessary to prevent further injury to yourself or to other staff or students.· Why it’s important to report any assaults or threats of assaults to your principal – and the reporting requirements of principals if there is an assault.· What your Association can do to help you take whatever steps are appropriate to protect your rights as an employee, including measures to provide a safer workplace for everyone in the building.
