We are honored to host Ms. JaMaiia M. Bond and Chief Martin Sissac at our next webinar, "Stronger Schools Through Restorative Justice" on September 6th at 5pm PST. Register now + learn about our guest speakers below.

JaMaiia M. Bond, Division of Child Welfare Attendance, Athletics and Special Programs, Compton Unified School District

As Senior Director of Child Welfare and Attendance, under the direction of the Compton Unified School District Governing Board and Superintendent Brawley, Ms. Bond established the Compton Unified School District Wellness Initiative, in 2017. Ms. Bond believes that a mentally healthy school environment that is trauma sensitive involves more than providing mental health services to students. It is critical to address the skills gaps in social emotional learning that students may have and to build resilience within students.

Ms. Bond and her team have designed the Wellness Initiative to address the academic, social, emotional, attendance and behavioral needs of students, which is built on the philosophy of both prevention and intervention. Through this initiative, she ensures that every classroom is wellness-focused, trauma informed, and provides a multi-faceted set of services and a multi-tiered system of support to students.

Ms. Bond's philosophy of prevention and intervention is at the core of the CUSD Wellness Initiative, which allows school sites to create environments that connect students to school, provide strong character building models, and support preventative measures through programs and services.
