Bullying Prevention in Positive Behavior Support: Expect Respect

This week all of our students participated in lessons to help promote a school-wide expectation for common respect, teaching what that means, and ensuring that all students and staff members share in the responsibility of creating and fostering a respectful school setting.

 

These lessons revolve around these key messages:

 

  1. Everyone in the school should know what it means to be respectful.
  2. Bullying is disrespectful and is maintained by attention from recipients, bystanders, and peers.
  3. Everyone in the school should have a strategy that stops encouraging and acknowledging bullying. When someone is not respectful, ask them to stop. Don’t allow bullying to be rewarded.
  4. Everyone asked to stop should have a common strategy for moving on without escalation.
  5. Students have the opportunity to report their concerns in a variety of ways. Talk to your counselor or any staff member.  Get a copy of our student report form and turn it into the office or a staff member.

Ask your child what process they can use to help prevent bullying.
