Peer Support Council (PSC)
Peer Support Council (PSC) is a group of students, elected by their peers. They serve as resources to assist with peer mediation and conflict resolution and support both in and out of class. These students contribute to a positive climate at school. Members of PSC receive training in mediation and conflict resolution skills. PSC convenes as needed with students and crew leaders that are involved with honor and/or discipline violations. After the PSC hears a case, it makes a recommendation to the Dean of Students and/or Executive Director regarding consequences or restorative justice. The PSC uses the Franklin School’s “Code of Conduct” as the basis for all recommendations.
Want more information about PSC? Email our high school Principal, Sarah Jean Smith, at email@example.com
