Resources for School Policy Change
As individual activists and organizations striving to change culture, it is critical that we challenge ourselves to expand our work to outer layers of the Social-Ecological Model (SEM). Engaging in policy change efforts, the outermost layer of the SEM, can feel like a daunting undertaking. Fortunately, a number of resources are being developed to provide guidance and support in policy efforts. Below are twelve resources to assist with school policy change efforts, including model policies, resource websites, and policy briefs.
Website: Stop Sexual Assault in Schools
Web Conference: Keeping the Climate Study Data and Other Reports Off-the-Shelf
Talking Points: “Considerations for School District Sexual Misconduct”
