Staying Within the Guardrails:
Professional Boundaries in Independent Schools

The past few years have highlighted a number of community lightning rods, including in our schools. Join this interactive conversation for independent school administrators and faculty to address the following questions:

  • How do school staff maintain healthy boundaries within the classroom, among parents, and other parts of the community?
  • Why are healthy boundaries important?
  • What are standard practices in independent schools?


  • This session is free for participants from AISGW, SAIS, and TAIS member schools.
  • The fee for non-member participants is $25 per person.
  • The Zoom link will be included in the reminder emails sent 24 hours and 2 hours prior to the start time.
  • The session will be recorded and a link will be emailed to all registrants within 24 hours.


This webinar is the second of a three-part series co-hosted by AISGW, SAIS, and TAIS. Additional webinars in this series will take place on October 14 and December 1.
