Bullies are becoming a thing of the past due to keen-eyed principals and teachers in our public schools.Principals are taking strong and positive action in making East Baton Rouge Parish public schools safer than ever, thanks in part to workshops like today’s (July 23) Promoting Safe and CaringSchools.
This proactive planning session is sponsored by the East Baton Rouge Parish School System’s Safety Committee to help principals do an even better job at identifying and managing students and adults prone to aggressive behavior and responding to serious threats using the latest educational research.In addition, the event will cover bully prevention and cyber bullying and how staff can work with parents to resolve an issue.
