Schools are educating an increasingly diverse student population. From students with disabilities to English Language Learners to transgender students, while facing accreditation and audits, school administrators’ jobs are becoming more complex.
Rest assured, Ferone Educational Consulting can help with customized, total school solutions for every population!
Are you a School Leader searching for ways to best serve your students with diverse needs?
In this time of dwindling budgets, do you worry about serving all of your students with disabilities? Are you concerned that one out-of-district placement or lawsuit from a parent will bankrupt your already tight budget? If you're a charter school leader, unresolved issues with special education could be the demise of your school. Ferone Educational Consulting brings decades of experience and expertise in special education law, training, and program design to help develop cost-effective special education programming where all students can thrive!
Safe & Supportive School Culture
Do you struggle with maintaining a safe and supportive school culture, while trying to handle school discipline and reduce suspensions? The Southern Poverty Law Center reports increasing hate incidents in school, leaving administrators with complex situations to address, and school violence is an ongoing concern. Ferone Educational Consulting brings its expertise and experience in behavior management, restorative practices, and school safety to create a safe, supportive and positive school community.
Equity & Excellence in Education
School climate and student engagement are enhanced when students can express their full identities, be it gender, LGBTQA+, racial, ethnic, immigrant or other status. Even high-achieving schools may face an achievement gap, resulting in downgrading of school status. Schools that encourage and empower students to channel ideas into positive action see higher student achievement. Ferone Educational Consulting can help your school be one of fairness and inclusion through a customized plan using your existing schedule and structures, as well as making sure your accreditation and audits run smoothly!
Social Emotional Success
Depression among students, particularly females, has grown at an alarming rate with a concurrent increase in psychiatric hospitalizations. Do you struggle with serving the needs of this vulnerable population and assisting with the transition back to school after hospitalizations? Do you face behavioral challenges with students? Ferone Educational Consulting brings its expertise in behavioral, social emotional, and mental health issues to ensure all students’ therapeutic and academic needs are met using trauma-informed approach.
