MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN CHILDREN'S LIVES
Everything we do is in support of our members and the students they serve
Developed in collaboration with Seattle, Tacoma and Puyallup school districts, the Safety & Support Guide provides information on how to establish a Response Team, meet with students and their families, and create manageable, trauma-informed Safety Plans following traumatic events. The Guide also provides assistance in trauma-informed investigations, mandatory reporting to law enforcement and provides templates, policies and forms for district use and adoption.
WSRMP offers free counseling coverage for students and families following a traumatic event at school that involves bullying, harassment or sexual abuse. As outlined in the Safety & Support Response Guide, WSRMP walks the member through the entire process from meeting with families to sending counseling invoices to us. Our mutual goal is to return students to the classroom ready to learn.
The SAPAC’s charge is to prevent sexual abuse and molestation in our schools. The Committee includes member districts, WSRMP staff, WSRMP panel counsel, investigators, and a child psychologist. Together, the Committee reviews the latest methods, programs and services designed to assist in the prevention of sexual abuse. Member districts are offered the opportunity to pilot some of these programs for free.
WSRMP is preparing a tool kit for members interested in exploring School-Based Health Care. The tool kit will provide superintendents and school boards with a checklist of considerations and FAQ’s that includes: contracts, advertising, coverage, medical malpractice exposures, insurance risk-transfer, facilities, nursing staff, student/campus safety, and much, much more.
WSRMP is pleased to partner with Community Matters in piloting the Safe School Ambassadors Program. WSRMP is offering for free, 3-year pilot programs to members who wish to start a Student Ambassador program. The program trains influential students to be “upstanders” rather than “bystanders” when confronted with challenging issues such as harassment, intimidation, bullying, violence or sexual misconduct.
