  • Columbus City Schools (CCS) staff receive training from the Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI) to ensure that both staff and students remain safe.  The training focuses primarily on teaching staff how to verbally deescalate a student who is experiencing a crisis.  Staff are also taught physical controls, however these controls are a last resort and only used when the behavior is a danger to the self or others, verbal deescalation has ceased to work, and the danger of the behavior is greater than the danger of being put into control or seclusion.
