Bullying, harassment, and hazing are detrimental to the well-being of students and greatly hinder them from reaching their true academic potential. The DeKalb County School District’s ”BULLYING STOPS HERE!” Awareness Campaign endeavors to stop bullying, harassment, discrimination, and hazing in schools. This comprehensive approach to addressing these issues seeks to educate, not only students, but the entire community of stakeholders.
Students and local school personnel are asked to sign a Bullying Awareness Pledge. Students pledge that they will refrain from participating and/or supporting bullying, harassment, or hazing. Additionally, local school personnel pledge to immediately address bullying, harassment, and intimidation, assist in its prevention and to model appropriate behavior for their students. In this ongoing campaign, schools focus each month on training staff, students, parents, and the community on topics related to bullying, harassment, and hazing. Topics include cyberbullying and cyberethics, bystander response, reporting incidents, kindness, friendship, bias, and respect.
