Joint Initiative of the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations and the School District of Philadelphia Seeks Volunteers
The most immediate need is to find 20 volunteer attorneys to provide training on the District's unlawful harassment and anti-bullying policies and the reporting requirements under these two policies to principals and assistant principals in the School District.
January 31, 2012 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. (training for volunteer attorneys) OR
February 7, 2012 from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. (training for volunteer attorneys) AND
February 9, 2012, the time will either be from 3:45 to 4:45 or 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. as yet to be determined (training of all principals by volunteer attorneys) AND/OR
February 14, 2012, the time will either be from 3:45 to 4:45 or 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. as yet to be determined (training of all assistant principals by volunteer attorneys)
The Training Plan for Principals and Assistant Principals
All principals will be attending professional development programs on February 9th. The plan is to have simultaneous breakout sessions so that the volunteer attorneys will deliver the training in separate rooms to small groups of principals. The same program will be repeated for all assistant principals on February 14th. All volunteers must be available either on the 9th or the 14th, or both the 9th and the 14th.
We will provide training to the volunteer attorneys on the materials to be used during the breakout sessions on January 31st and February 7th. Volunteer attorneys need only attend one of these train the trainer sessions, not both.
