Jeffrey C.  Roth Author of Evaluating Organization Development

Jeffrey C. Roth

After joining my school district in Delaware, I initiated a school-wide approach to conflict resolution, developed Instructional Support and Positive Behavior Support Teams, helped initiate and lead our Crisis Response Team, and was named state School Psychologist of the Year. After retirement, I often thought about the most meaningful aspect of my career - responding to school crises, and began writing about these traumatic events and lessons learned to help prepare practitioners and teams.
