Program Description

The Violence and Incidence Collaborative Evaluation in Schools (VICES) sub-baccalaureate certificate provides students with a system-based, comprehensive view of school violence, critical incidence identification, response and prevention. Students examine specific case law as it pertains to the school environment and operational procedures; become familiar with special education classifications (IDEA, PL-94-142, 504 plans and functional behavioral assessment procedures); and examine the socio-educational system and institutional variables that contribute to violence, incidence intervention and collaboration within the school and community.
