Dear Genesee County Educators,
The Genesee County Prevention Coalition (GCPC) would like to offer your students an opportunity to avoid suspension for conduct violations and increase their use of healthy coping strategies. We realize that many youth in Genesee County are still struggling with the impact of social isolation and emotional distress. Often unhealthy coping behaviors develop and create an even greater problem, especially when substances like alcohol, marijuana and nicotine are used to manage daily life stressors. The GCPC has purchased courses through 3rd Millennium Classrooms that give students the chance to examine their choices and develop an alternative action plan. Courses are offered online and can be used as an alternative to suspension or as a brief intervention for repeating conduct violations for vaping and other substance use. There is also a course for parents to assist with reinforcing healthy choices and having difficult conversations. Please review the attached documents for more information and course descriptions.
If you would like to move forward with setting up the referral process for accessing 3rd Millennium Classrooms, please complete the School Referral Form link below. Once we receive this form the student and parent will be contacted to register for the course. After the student is registered, they will receive an email with the course description and access code. The student will then log onto 3rd Millennium Classrooms with that code to take the course free of charge (a $60 value). Upon completion of the course, the student immediately receives a certificate of completion. The GCPC will notify the school contact person when the student has completed the course.
