Kentucky Center for School Safety
Kentucky Safe Schools Week Oct 21-27
This Year's Theme
. BULLYING: Be Part of the Cure
Kentucky Center for School Safety wants to encourage every school across Kentucky to participate in Kentucky Safe Schools Week. The theme this year will be “BULLYING: Be Part of the Cure” and emphasizes the part each individual can play in stopping this harmful “disease” from becoming “viral”. During this campaign each student and staff member will be empowered to become “Part of the Cure” helping to do their part to stop bullying and create a healthy, respectful climate in their school.
During this week long observance a concerted effort will be used to bring together all Kentuckians to improve safety in our schools by educating students, staff and communities about the true definition of bullying, how to be consistent in handling situations that arise and strategies to prevent bullying behavior that can impact the educational process. For teachers there are a broad variety of resources including: 1) Lessons for all ages, 2) Interactive Websites 3)The BULLYING: Be Part of the Cure Pledge and 4) Curriculum to use through out the year. Professional development information, powerpoints, handouts and checklists will be available for school administrators, pa rents and community members at https://www.kysafeschools.org/ssw.php.
