Conflict Management in Education (CME) Legislative Database Project
Georgia State University’s CNCR’s new CRiSP Conflict Management in Education (CME) Legislative Database provides access to current and pending school conflict management legislation for school stakeholders, conflict management practitioners, and policy makers.
Legislation, and the regulations supporting it, often provides a variety of resources, including funding, consultation and assistance in establishing a program, direction on program design, and curriculum and training materials. Unfortunately, many school stakeholders do not have ready access to this information, none of which is organized and made available in a single easily accessible location and format. Additionally, policy makers are unable to easily compare the various models of legislation on conflict management in education so as to make more informed choices in creating new legislation in this area.
The CME Legislative Database seeks to address these gaps. Users may search by key word, jurisdiction, or legal form of legislation (statute, bill or regulation) to access information on school conflict management legislation of particular interest to them. The database provides abstracts of legislation, links to the full text of legislation where available, and key information organized by categories including:
* Title of the legislation;
* Status (pending, effective, abandoned);
* Effective date (if applicable);
* Funding source and contact;
* Grades covered by legislation (elementary, middle, high school or other);
* Whether the legislation supports a mandate or merely a recommended course of action;
* Agency contact for more information;
* Availability of supporting materials such as manuals, curricula, videos, etc.
The database is updated annually to ensure access to current information.
