District 1, November Meeting
November 20 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm ESTFree
Our next District 1 Meeting will be on Wednesday, November 20th from 4:30 to 8:00 PM at Duffy’s Tavern & Grill located at 4 Main Street (Route 1) in downtown Kennebunk.
Have you, or a colleague you know, ever been slapped, scratched, punched, bitten or kicked by a student? Have you or your colleagues been told that this violent behavior from a student “is just part of your job?”
At this meeting Dan Allen, the MEA Director of Training and Professional Development, will be talking about LD 1370 “An Act to Address Dangerous Behavior in the Classroom.”
This law provides you and other school employees in your school district to have a voice in addressing what is needed to respond to violent student behavior, to be involved in identifying supports for both the students and the educators, and to have a say on ways to reduce the occurrence and/or re-occurrence of these violent behaviors. I would strongly encourage local association officers and building reps to be part of this process!
Please share this notice with your Association members who are working with students who display violent behavior and encourage them to attend this meeting!
