Bullying Behavior - Discussion and Action
As a community, we value creating welcoming environments where the uniqueness of each person is honored and valued, recognizing that we all come from many different circumstances and cultures. With that in mind, we work to ensure schools are safe, respectful, caring environments for children and adults.
In summer of 2014, the Duluth School Board adopted the Minnesota School Board Association Model Bullying Prohibition Policy as a foundation for involving the community and developing meaningful compliance with the state's Safe Schools Act. This fall, teachers and staff are receiving training to prevent, identify and respond to bullying. Training began with a staff development day for teachers prior to the start of school.
An active, passionate ISD 709 Citizens Committee is working to further community conversation on this important subject and provide advice. Students are actively involved, organizing their own awareness campaigns.
