Boundaries are invisible limits and guidelines, personal, professional and protective in nature, imperative for staff members to create in order to foster healthy relationships. Maintaining boundaries is an important component of evading claims of harassment by colleagues and preserving a professional environment. Creating boundaries is a particularly crucial consideration for individuals employed in schools who interact daily with other professionals and students. School employees are in a unique position of trust, care, authority, and influence with their students, thus there is always an inherent power imbalance between teachers and students. This power imbalance can easily create situations where confusion and allegations of misconduct may arise. Consequently, school employees should be educated about and aware of
establishing appropriate boundaries with both colleagues and students.
The boundary training is designed to raise awareness of issues and situations that may arise, prompt attentive behavior, and provide guidance for preventing and avoiding allegations of misconduct.
