The Children's Policy and Law Initiative of Indiana (CPLI) is a nonprofit organization that advocates for the fair, just, equitable and humane treatment of all children and seeks to reform laws, policies and practices that increase the risk of children becoming involved in our justice systems. CPLI is currently seeking to fill the full time position of Program Coordinator for the Positive School Discipline Institute and other CPLI programs.
The Positive School Discipline Institute (PSDI) is an innovative training initiative for educators that helps to reduce out-of-school suspensions and school-based arrests, through improving student engagement and implementing strategies that help create positive learning environments. The program imparts knowledge and skills that help school communities embrace culturally-responsive, trauma-informed practices. It provides research-based training for educators and teachers to pursue reforms so that school disciplinary policies, practices and programs are aligned with best practices and lead to improved outcomes for children.
The position reports directly to the President/Executive Director. The Program Coordinator primarily administers and supports the Positive School Discipline Institute (PSDI), and assists with the coordination of other CPLI programs. This position will require extensive training in positive school discipline practices with the goal that the position will evolve into a lead trainer-director role. Qualified candidates should have an understanding of equity and culturally-responsive practices, a commitment to social justice and the goals and values of the organization, and a passion for ending practices that perpetuate the school-to-prison pipeline. A love of teaching and coaching others is essential for this job. The individual should be self-motivated, well-organized, able to work independently and well with a team, and inspire volunteers to be and stay involved. Strong writing, communication and technology skills are a must. Much of the work will be done remotely with regular virtual and in-person coordination.
