P.E.A.C.E. — A Proactive Approach to Incident-Response
Adopt our P.E.A.C.E. framework to prepare and respond to hate and bias-related incidents in your school.
Prevent and Prepare.
Be ready for incidents so that you can act quickly when something happens.
Young people are often reluctant to tell adults about incidents because they believe it won’t help and may make things worse.
Act Quickly and Respond.
Every reported incident should be responded to in a serious manner which conveys a message that the behavior is unacceptable.
Ensure that everyone understands the reporting procedures. When an incident occurs, keep all members of the school community informed.
Educate and Heal.
Teaching about bias and how to challenge it is important before an incident occurs and essential to recovery when something does happen.
