The Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy (OPOTA) from London, OH offered two four-hour training classes for area criminal justice professionals and students during April, Community College Month. A class entitled "Critical Incident Stress Management Awareness" was held on Friday, April 12 at 8:00 a.m. in the Community Room of WSCC's Main Building. This workshop prepared participants for a wide range of crisis intervention services: critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD), pre-incident crisis education, significant other support services, on-scene support services, crisis intervention for individuals, information on line-of-duty death, suicide, and reasonable coping skills for both day-to-day stress and stress caused from exposure to traumatic events. The training also discussed appropriate follow up services and referrals for traumatic stress.


Washington State Community College (WSCC) will hold a Math Summit on April 19th. The summit comes during the heart of Community College Month, and its purpose is to bring attention to the math-skills gap that is causing problems for some area high-school graduates when they begin math studies at the college level. Goals of the summit include bringing secondary and post-secondary math educators together to brainstorm solutions for this skills gap, particularly as it pertains to lack of retention of previously learned material. David Scheimann, Retention Coordinator at WSCC, talks about the reasons for the summit. "I have some statistics that show that a lot of students test into developmental math at WSCC, and it concerns me because they have already been through the material", he laments. It will take the collaboration of both secondary and college instructors to make sure incoming college students are well-prepared for math success at WSCC and other institutions of higher education.
