Hamilton City School District psychologist Bradley Paramore has been selected to serve on Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s new Ohio School Safety Working Group. He has also been chosen to serve on the Executive Committee that will create the final recommendation for the annual report on school safety and implementation of new training and programs.
Paramore is among more than 40 school administrators and advocacy group members who met for the first time this week as they begin to evaluate current issues regarding school safety and will advise the Ohio School Safety Center on its work.
Paramore, who also serves as president of the Ohio School Psychologists Association, said, “It is an important issue for our students, one I see come up quite a bit as a school psychologist. Putting positive interventions and supports in place where we can address issues that students are struggling with, or that they show up at school with can have a positive impact on schools and school performance. I am excited to be on this committee so that I can share our district’s policies and learn from others on the committee.”
Paramore received his Psychology & Sociology Degree from Case Western Reserve University and his Masters and Education Specialist Degrees from John Carroll University.
He has served as a psychologist in the Hamilton City School District for six years and has previously served the State as a part of the Ohio Department of Education's Social Emotional Learning Standards Advisory Committee, where he helped with the development of the newly adopted Social Emotional Learning Standards for the State of Ohio.
Mr. Paramore has also participated in the Behavior Health & Wellness Advisory Committee for ODE that made recommendations to the Superintendent of Public Instruction regarding topics of social, emotional, mental, and behavioral health including mental well-being, depression, anxiety, drug and alcohol use and abuse, bullying and harassment, trauma, and suicide.
