Bullying Prevention Workshop
In June 2012, the New York State Legislature enacted Chapter 102 of the Laws of 2012,
which amended the Dignity Act to include a requirement that school
professionals applying for a certificate or license on or after July 1,
2013 complete training on the social patterns of harassment, bullying
This proposal includes an amendment that requires teacher and school leadership preparation programs to include at least six hours of training in Harassment, Bullying and Discrimination Prevention and Intervention. Students who graduate this year but do not apply for their certification until after July 1, 2013 will be required to take the six hour training course. The School of Education will post details about this workshop over the summer, 2013.

Meet Our Newest Faculty Member
Jessica Bacon is a new member of the Counseling, Leadership, Literacy, and Special Education faculty. Soon to be Dr. Bacon, Jessica is defending her dissertation in September 2012. Her doctoral research at Syracuse University focused on the impact of the standards-based reform movement on an urban elementary school that has been designated Persistently Low Achieving under the No Child Left Behind Act. Jessica’s academic and social commitments revolve around mitigating oppression for people with disabilities and promoting more inclusive and equitable services and systems. She has served as an advisor for self-advocacy groups, worked at a parent-advocacy resource center for special education services, created inclusive post-secondary programs for transition age youth and adults, provided technical assistance to schools and educators interested in promoting inclusive practices, and helped to establish a disability cultural center at Syracuse University. Jessica believes that her teaching, research, and service experiences complement one another and lives the values embodied in LUTE (Lehman Urban Transformative Education), the School of Education’s conceptual framework.
