As a school leader, you must know the signs of child abuse and neglect, and know how to act sensitively, accurately, and legally toward all parties involved. When accusations are made, you need to act promptly and appropriately, as well. This simulation gives you practice recognizing and responding in a variety of situations and also provides you with an application tool for assessing and mitigating risk.

Key characters include an outgoing and single teacher, a new teacher to the school who is newly divorced, P.E. teacher and coach, dance teacher who is married with 2 children, veteran 2nd-grade teacher and mentor
Trade-offs to consider:

  • When accusations are made, you need to act promptly and appropriately, as well
  • Trusting that the information given by staff is always in the best interest of students vs. being open to underlying psycho-social issues
  • Practicing discernment, while not being afraid to act
