school_policy_kit The School Policy Kit will guide schools and school districts through the process of creating policies and protocols necessary to meet the challenge of teen dating violence.

Teens need trusted adults who are trained and prepared to respond to the issue of dating violence. The School Policy Kit will guide schools and school districts through the process of creating policies and protocols necessary to meet the challenge of teen dating violence.

With the School Policy Kit, schools can:

  • Assess school climate and needs
  • Draft new policies or review and edit existing ones
  • Benefit from best-practices and lessons learned
  • Be prepared to respond to dating violence on campus
  • Provide key resources to teachers, staff and students.

This resource is designed for both middle and high school settings and provides specific information related to each particular population.
