This is an ethics protection/violation prevention course for senior high school and junior high school teachers and administrators. It is not intended for educators/administrators who are dealing with disciplinary procedures. The purpose of this course is to reduce a teacher’s or administrator’s violation potential through the application of the Boundary/Ethics Formula and the implementation of the Stratified Ethics Protection Plan. This course is administered through the continuing education system of host universities. By selecting a university, you will be directed to their system to register and access the course.

The goal of the course is to reduce the occurrence of ethical and boundary transgressions committed by educators.
This course is intended for educators and administrators who have not violated or have not been accused of a breach of ethics, boundaries, law, or policy.
Educators currently dealing with administrative or disciplinary action for an accusation and/or violation, or preparing for regulatory hearings as a result of such actions, require the specialized course, Professional Boundaries, Ethics, and Professionalism for Educators: A Course for Teachers Facing Administrative and Disciplinary Action.
"Maintaining Ethics and Professional Boundaries in Our Schools" is an interactive educational algorithm adapted from the live national programs currently produced by Professional Boundaries, Inc., and condensed into relatively brief, autonomous, online experiences. These courses are based on a conceptual teaching model (The Boundary/Ethics Formula™) that looks at the relationship of multiple variables that impact ethical decision processing. An algorithm, developed by a student at Princeton University, mathematically converts your selection of elements in the Formula into a general numeric range. This will help you determine your potential for violations, which will then enable you the opportunity to take pro-active steps for reducing this potential. At the conclusion, you will be asked to complete the course evaluation and a short post-test. The University of Wisconsin - Platteville will issue your Certificate of Completion.
