Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn more about SROs and their relationships with students.
  2. learn more about improving relationships between SROs and students.
  3. learn more about zero tolerance policies within schools and how this affects SROs' relationships with students.


This presentation summarizes current available evidence-based SRO programs that have demonstrated effectiveness in promoting SRO and student relationships. With this information, school psychologists, educators, administrators, and other school-based mental health professionals will be better able to adopt evidence-based SRO programs aimed at improving the relationships between SROs, students, and the overall school community in order to foster the optimal school climate.
