Continuing Education Day

On February 3, 2017 the staff of the Cabell County Alternative School worked hard to take advantage of the valuable time.  The day began with Misty Cooper, school nurse, training the staff on pertinent information regarding signs and symptoms of student distress with asthma, diabetes, seizures, and allergic reactions. 

The staff received hands-on training with many of the following: EpiPens, Inhalers, Diastat, and Glucagon. 

Then the staff moved on to Trauma Training.  Malory Baker, member of the Cabell County Trauma Team, shared some important information she had received to work with traumatized students.  The staff watched and discussed videos on Conscious Discipline and even took and discussed the ACES test.  The staff discussed their own well-being with deep breathing and chair yoga. 

Finally, the staff worked together to create two cross-curricular units for February – Valentine’s Day and Black History being the focus.  It was a very busy and rewarding day for the staff to pull together and create quality work at the Alternative School.
