School Grants Program

The rising violence in schools has caused many school districts to implement a wide range of extensive and expensive safety measures and programs. While these may limit school violence, they may not help prevent student conflicts from escalating. Students need good problem solving and conflict resolution life skills to effectively deescalate and resolve conflicts in a productive and peaceful way.

To address this need, the Maryland Judiciary's Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office (MACRO), in conjunction with the Center for Dispute Resolution at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law (C-DRUM) and the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) are sponsoring a school conflict resolution program. The program awards one-year grants to schools that create conflict resolution programs.

Grant recipients develop and implement innovative and comprehensive conflict resolution programs to change their school's cultures. The grants program began in 2003 and has been offered annually. Download brochure »
