Student Problem Identification and Resolution of Issues Together (SPIRIT)

For more than 35 years, the Community Relations Service of the U.S. Department of Justice has worked with schools across the nation. Many school systems have experienced major demographic changes. At times, tensions and disruptions will accompany the process of inclusion and assimilation. The Community Relations Service of the U.S. Department of Justice (CRS) has helped schools to build strategies to improve lines of communication, establish programs to eliminate racial and ethnic misconceptions, and develop plans to prevent conflict and improve intergroup relations among students, faculty, staff, parents and community groups. SPIRIT is one such CRS program.

CRS conducts SPIRIT programs throughout the country. SPIRIT improves communications among diverse student leaders and reduces racial tensions in schools. SPIRIT helps to improve student/teacher relationships. SPIRIT works to prevent violence and conflict among students in schools with changing demographic populations. All CRS services are free as a public service to our customers.
