Parents Resources


It is usually best to talk directly with an administrator, counselor, psychologist, or social worker. However, since students and parents are not always comfortable doing so, this is another tool that can be used to report bullying or other safety concerns.

This telephone number is designated for individuals to report situations involving intimidation, harassment, threats, abuse, and other forms of bullying. It is also to be used to report any other safety concern.

RTO Plan

As an organization, NSSEO is dedicated to providing a safe and supportive learning environment for all students while also effectively supporting students within our programs who may present an imminent danger of serious physical harm to the student or others.  To accomplish these goals, we are committed to:

  1. using trauma-informed and equitable practices for all students,

  2. embedding use of proactive, therapeutic SEL and behavioral supports for students across all environments to reduce the instances in which RTO is needed to ensure the safety of a student or others, and

  3. utilizing RTO practices as a last resort, only after less restrictive and intrusive measures have been tried and proven ineffective in stopping the imminent danger of physical harm.

The specific action steps outlined in the attached RTO Reduction Plan articulate the strategies we will use to accomplish these simultaneous goals.
