Lexington ISD Peace Keepers

Lexington Elementary Peace Keepers Lexington Elementary Peace Keepers Peer Mediation is now available on the Elementary and Middle School Campuses of LISD. Mediation is the voluntary, peaceful resolution of disputes or conflicts in which one or more neutral parties act as Mediators.

A Peer Mediator is trained to provide a safe, scripted, confidential, structured process to assist other students in conflict to end disputes peacefully by reaching mutually acceptable agreements.

Peer Mediation provides students with a positive alternative to conflict. LISD Peace Keepers received training through the paxUnited Peers Making Peace program. Peers Making Peace is a research-based, educator created program. It is also the only conflict resolution program in the United States to be recognized by the United States Department of Education Safe & Drug Free School & Communities, Center of Substance Abuse Prevention, and the Office of Juvenile Justice & Delinquency Prevention.
