I will be using primary prevention in plan creation for prevention of bullying in the youth population in the Tijeras, NM school district. The activities and objectives will be discussed and a plan to evaluate this projects and its effectiveness will be explored. I will explain the steps I would take to evaluate how well a health agency is meeting the needs of the population it serves. The summary of my findings will be presented in a summary report format. A case study …show more content…
Write a summary of the report that you would present to the voluntary agency. In following the CDC’s framework for evaluating program; I will outline how well the voluntary health agency is meeting its target population 's needs. Several questions to be asked include purpose of the evaluation, client’s need met in the context of the program, extent of its political considerations, program equitableness, and any problems with access to their services, timeliness and satisfaction. (Clark, 2015) I would conduct surveys, data analysis, and an evaluation of empowerment. (Clark, 2015) Data sources I would use are the agency’s internal records, public health reports and independent surveys, this will be done collaboratively with both the population and those evaluating. (Clark, 2015) The findings should be compared with benchmarks or criteria. (Clark, 2015)The findings will then be translated into language that will be shared with stakeholders. (Clark, 2015)

The purpose of this study is to identify the most prevalent forms of bullying on a high school campus and identify which strategies are most effective to prevent or respond to bullying. The study will also identify the most effective strategies to improve student achievement and attendance for those students who have experienced bullying. Students must feel safe to learn. Students who are bullied have a propensity to avoid the bullies; therefore, they choose not to attend school. Poor attendance often will result in poor grades and even dropping out of school.
The policy document provides tools, strategies, information, and support both on local and regional levels. Through parent engagement, issues of bullying, self-esteem, and self-efficacy can be identified and tackled. From this policy, the main actors created a program that was well thought, addressed several issues arising from the problem definition stage, and tackled them specifically by providing solutions for effective implementation. Latent in this policy is the value of good parenting; the social complexity of this issue requires specificity in the established goals. From these goals, programs and initiatives are developed such as Parent Reaching Out grants, and so
These principals were asked to list what they considered serious or moderate problems in their schools. The most frequently cited problems at all levels were the less violent behaviors such as tardiness (40%), absenteeism (25%), and physical conflicts between students (21%). The NCES report found that violent crimes occurred at an annual rate of only 53 per 100,000 students. The critical incidents that are typically the focus of school safety debates were reported to be at least "a moderate problem”: drug use (9%), gangs (5%), possession of weapons (2%), and physical abuse of teachers (2%). The continued use of this of this policy is mainly due to the perception of violence in schools continually being exacerbated by extended media coverage when isolated events of school violence occur according to Martinez
I recommend including students, faculty, parents, and community representatives in the process of developing the school safety plan. The plan should be responsible for providing advice and making decisions about critically important cases of violence and crime, evaluating the state of school safety, and proposing revisions to the school discipline code and school safety plan as deemed necessary. A safety assessment should be conducted to determine the state of school order and safety. A survey of staff, parents, and students could help to determine their views and recommendations regarding school crime and violence. The survey data should be analyzed so the leadership team and community can address the issues. The school is gated off from the community and ringing a bell is required before the gate is
The Olweus Bullying Prevention Program is a school-based and research-based program that prevents bullying in all forms and addresses other inappropriate behavior among children in our community. This program has been implemented in elementary and middle schools throughout **** County such as ****. This program is currently funded by the **** County Drug & Alcohol Commission, Inc. and a grant from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. The grants that have been obtained are currently funding training at the 6 involved schools for administrative staff and classroom teachers. Presently, the needs for training materials and incentives for students and staff are under met.

I was excited when I saw this week’s assignment because one of my goals for 2016 is to talk less and listen more. I practiced the assignment with someone most people avoided because everybody describes her as being long-winded. She initiated a conversation about dating so I took the time, gave her my undivided attention, and listened attentively. At first, I found myself wanting to interrupt but I controlled myself and let her talk. I found out it was difficult at first to be person centered but once I focused on everything she was saying instead of trying to give advice about her problem, I was able to empathize with her without saying anything. She eventually asked for my opinion and I told her she already knew the answer based on what she
Safe schools are developed through planning with specific goals in mind. This process begins with the implementation of a School Safety Committee to develop a violence prevention program that is comprehensive in nature. This program would implement prevention activities and develop a comprehensive plan to maintain a school atmosphere conducive for learning. The plan would have strategies for the building, classroom and individual student level. The stakeholders would include students, teachers, counselors, administrators, parents, law enforcement, civic leaders, church and business leaders.
Although schools, agencies and pediatricians can do much at the community level to mitigate bullying and its effects, the problem is clearly societal in scope. Bullying cannot be stopped with a single intervention or by a single social agency. The use of violence to solve problems is repeatedly illustrated through television and other visual media. Many parents of bullies believe that it is appropriate for their children to learn how to compete in the schoolyard and do not see bullying as an issue (Feldman Hertz, Donato, & Wright, 2013). Too many children in our society are exposed to domestic violence directed towards parents and themselves. Too many children are born into adverse family situations, including low maternal age at the birth
During the past decade, school safety has been at the forefront of many school districts safety polices and plans. With recent high profile school shootings, the question school districts continue to ask is how do we keep our schools safe? Administrators face heavy scrutiny when weighing approaches to school safety and student discipline. Likewise, school employees have the right to work in safe environments devoid of life-threatening behaviors (Fenning and Bohanon, 2006; Skiba and Rausch, 2006). America’s founding fathers understood the importance of a public school education. They believed educating its citizens would allow them the opportunity to learn new skills while becoming successful and productive people in society. However, our founding fathers did not predict the severe behavior changes our schools face in educating disruptive and dangerous students. America’s school districts are charged with providing solutions for disruptive and dangerous students (Fenning and Bohanon, 2006; Skiba and Rausch, 2006). School officials must address these issues with research-based interventions and collaborative resources that provide a safe learning environment for all stakeholders (Elliott and Mihalic, 2004; Schoenwald and Hoagwood, 2001). Boards of education continue to support school efforts to rethink best practices for disciplinary alternative middle schools (DAMS). Many school districts focus on research-based interventions and resources that manage aggression and
My professional development plan is to grow as a nurse by obtaining knowledge through school and daily life and work experiences. In five to 10 years, I will be able care for patients and their families as a nurse practitioner. Setting short-term and long-term goals will help guide through the journey to transition into the role of professional nursing and provide new opportunities for the future. Beliefs and values influence the decisions or choices people make in their personal and professional lives. My philosophy of nursing incorporates my beliefs and values, which includes being an advocate for patients and
