Dispute Settlement Center, Inc.
September 16, 2010
The Dispute Settlement Center worked extensively with our high school staff and students to develop a mediation and a peer mediation program. The best part of the work their trained professionals did, was help empower us to sustain these programs on our own and to integrate these methods into the daily practices of school life. Since the development of our mediation programs, we have seen a marked decrease in behavioral incidents and suspensions. We are also pleased that the Dispute Settlement Center helped us to develop more leadership opportunities for high school students by training them to become peer mediators.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
by seeing my staff empowered to recognize conflicts, intervene quickly and efficiently and therefore assist students in focusing on their academic work. We have had a decrease in behavior incidents and improved feeling of safety in the school.
