Students are required to attend the Violence Intervention classes with a parent or guardian. It is not a place that is appropriate to bring babies and young children.

The program is not conducted in a disciplinary fashion but is rather a learning and educational opportunity in lieu of further suspension.

The classes are designed to provide your child with a new beginning and to encourage them to process behavioral choices.
The goal is to increase parent and student dialogue about violence in hopes to prevent further occurrences.

If after attending the Violence Intervention Program you have questions, concerns, or need further assistance or referrals, please call our office:

(775) 850-8011

If you plan to obtain counseling at your own expense in lieu of this program, please call this office to arrange a meeting for the required hours.
