Anti-bullying policy adopted by Cannon Co.
As a part of Cannon County Schools’ School-Wide Positive Behavior Support program, bullying prevention efforts are an ongoing priority.
The school system has developed the following strategy statement regarding bullying behaviors:
To make our school violence-free and safe from bullying, we pledge not to tolerate bullying
* to intervene in incidents of bullying and strictly enforce rules against bullying
As a part of the Bullying Prevention Program, students as well as staff, participate in lessons designed to help him/her define bullying and understand what behaviors are considered bullying understand the effect of bullying behaviors and develop empathy for targeted students
* learn ways to respond to bullying behavior
The overall goal of the Bullying Prevention program is to empower students to report bullying behaviors and to give school staff the tools to recognize, intervene, and issue consequences for bullying behaviors they witness or hear about from students. Students who bully receive appropriate consequences to help them realize that bullying behavior isn’t appropriate and won’t be tolerated at school.
Additionally, all students participate in lessons concerning internet safety. An additional link “NetSmartz® Workshop” has been added to the Cannon County School District’s homepage that provides information to parents on how to keep students cyber-safe. You may access this information at www.ccstn.net under the “Headlines” link.
For questions regarding the Bullying Prevention program and how it is implemented, parents may contact their child’s school principal or school counselor.
