Prevention Plan

Rose Creek Elementary Prevention Plan Overview  

Rose Creek Elementary is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all our students. Our school has plans to help students who may need additional support. We prioritize prevention by offering our students and their families various services and support. Below are some examples of the everyday efforts, systems, and strategies we use to support our students:

  • Classroom and rotation teachers utilize the Golden Gate Kids program to teach students how to build positive connections.
  • The PBIS Behavior Matrix is posted in classrooms to guide student behavior.
  • Academic and behavior weekly support meetings are held for teachers to discuss student needs with Special Education teachers and administration.
  • School psychologists and counselors provide the "Check In Check Out" program for students who need tier 2 social-emotional support.
  • Teachers use a chart on which students can put a sticky note indicating how they feel upon entering the classroom each day. This allows teachers to check in with students feeling down early in the day.
  • The district offers Aspen training to all staff supporting Autism Support Classrooms, which includes de-escalation techniques and crisis response.
  • Incident Command Drills are held monthly.
  • Rose Creek has a full-time School Psychologist and School Counselor who focuses on building relationships with students to help them feel connected to school.
  • The SafeUT App is available to Rose Creek students, teachers, and families, and when an incident is reported, the administration is notified and follows up on the incident.
  • The school provides access to District mental health and support resources through Student Services, including the Jordan Family Education Center and Mental Health Access Program.
  • Mental health providers at the school (school counselors, school psychologists, or clinical support) are trained and supported by the District administration to follow current best practices in prevention and intervention efforts.
  • The school intervenes with early warning, content monitoring, and anonymous reporting tools with support from District specialists to identify and support students who may be at risk.
  • The school provides access to parent and family resources, including a District partnership with the Cook Center for Human Connection, evening parent seminars, and classes through the Jordan Family Education Center.

Suicide Prevention Plan

  • Our school’s mental health providers and administrators are trained on suicide risk intervention guidelines, which are reviewed annually with support from Jordan District’s Student Services Team.
  • Our school’s licensed staff participate in suicide prevention training as part of their license renewal.
  • Students identified who may be at risk of suicide receive interventions and support appropriate to their individual needs, which may include a screening interview (CSSR-S), parent/guardian contact, a safety plan, mental health recommendations/referrals (JFEC, MHAP, etc.), a re-entry meeting, and regular follow-up.
  • Rose Creek classroom teachers focus on building positive relationships with their students. Research shows that one caring adult significantly impacts student outcomes, and teacher-student relationships are critical to academic and social-emotional success.

Bullying, Harassment, and Discrimination Prevention Plan

  • Our school team proactively reviews relevant data on school climate, safety, and bullying by identifying vulnerable populations (e.g., racial and ethnic groups, LGBTQ youth, students with disabilities) and specific spaces where bullying may be likely to plan support accordingly.
  • Our staff is trained on school procedures for recognizing, reporting (SafeUT, content monitoring, etc.), and responding to bullying incidents.
  • Our school staff documents incidents in Skyward according to State requirements.
  • Students involved in incidents of bullying as targets, aggressors, or witnesses receive support for their individual needs, which may include suicide risk assessments, counseling and mental health services (i.e., school mental health team, JFEC, MHAP), Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA), Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP), a student wellness plan and parent/guardian contact—recognizing that targets, aggressors, and witnesses of bullying are more susceptible to school problems.
  • We use restorative practices, which allow students to understand why the incident happened, teach appropriate ways to handle types of situations, and correct things to ensure it doesn’t happen again. We also teach respect, empathy, conflict resolution, kindness, assertiveness, etc., to build community and resolve conflicts peacefully.

 Violence Prevention Plan

  • Our school’s administrators and other threat assessment team members, including school counselors, school psychologists, and coaches, are trained on the Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines (C-STAG).
  • Our school has a process for responding promptly to threats, using the Comprehensive School Threat Assessment Guidelines (C-STAG) and its decision tree. This includes warning potential victims and their parents/guardians.
  • Our school’s staff and students are aware of school procedures for recognizing and reporting threats of violence (SafeUT, content monitoring, etc.).
  • A link to the SafeUT app is on the Rose Creek Elementary School website.
  • Students who are affected by or who make threats of violence receive interventions and support appropriate to their individual needs, which may include problem-solving, C-STAG interviews, suicide risk assessments, Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA), Restorative Conferencing, Mediation, a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP), counseling and mental health services (i.e., school mental health team, JFEC, MHAP) a student wellness plan and parent contact.
  • Students work with our school psychologist and counselors in small groups or individually to develop social-emotional and conflict-resolution skills.
  • Following a conflict brought to the administrative level, administrators mediate with students using restorative questions and practices.
