Peer Mediation Summary 2012-2013

Peer Mediation for 2012-2013 school year began with recruiting student during Central High School’s Quad day on September 6, 2012.  Peer mediation’s table was staffed by Prairie Land Conflict Mediation Center, President, Joy George and Board member, Ginny Bolan with the help of peer mediation students from the previous year.  They were instrumental in recruiting students for training in October.  The training was a huge success with a total of 52 students attending the one day event.   Joy George and Ginny Bolan continued to work with students twice a month to insure students were fully trained to conduct mediations.  Each student received a pin when they were qualified to conduct mediations.


The following is a summary of the success of the program based on data.   There were a total of eighty-one students who went through the mediation process.  Of those students, nine were mediated more than once during the year.  Peer mediation was a viable resource and alternative to an altercation. To our knowledge only two fights occurred after mediation took place.  Below is a chart of the racial makeup of the students involved in mediations.
