This strategy is about personalizing services and supports for kids to help prevent, identify and stop harmful behaviours—whether online, at school or in the community. ERASE Bullying builds on effective programs already in place and will ensure consistent policies and practices across all 60 school districts, backed by strong community partnerships.
This training strives to provide a deeper understanding of how to create, measure and evaluate school connectedness and expands into exploring the different climate and culture of classrooms and schools. A main focus is on the prevention of bullying and recognizing the different types; roles of the bully, the target and the bystanders; and on intervention techniques. An introduction to violence threat/risk assessment in preparation for the next level of training will be explored.
Partnerships are key to supporting our students—academically and socially. The triangle relationship between the student, parents and teachers is imperative to ensure student success. We are applying that triangle model into our communities to ensure community supports—family, school, community—are there when districts need them. Schools and school districts continually seek ways to make every student feel valued, respected, safe, wanted and connected. Many students come to school each day because the school is the only place they feel physically safe, yet they are not connected emotionally. This training will explore ways to reach out to these students to help create feelings of being valued, respected and wanted.
