UPDATE: West Islip High School Launching Peer Mediation Program

Program originated from a student who is a trained peer mediator.

The West Islip High School is launching a new program this year that aims to help students with solving conflicts.

The new Peer Mediation Program was initiated by Victoria Koffsky, a high school student who is a trained peer mediator and several other students.

The program is called ACE (All Created Equal)

"The mediation is focusing on issues regarding discrimination; be it racial, sexual, religious,etc, and will still remain in lines with the NYS Dignity Act," Koffsky told Patch in an email. The faculty adviser of ACE is Mrs. Reanna Fulton.

The idea won the support of High School Principal Dr. Anthony Bridgeman who believes it's important to give students a voice in the school.
