The Bullying Prevention Task Force and Chatham County Schools are working together to provide support for schools, students and parents in an effort to stop bullying. Providing an avenue to report bullying and supporting students who have faced incidents of bullying are two ways we are addressing the issue. Each school has an anonymous bullying reporting form on their web pages located in dropdowns labeled students and families. You can also contact the school counselor or principal to report bullying. The Bullying Prevention Task Force and school counselors have lead the implementation of the “Safe Zone Program”. Chatham County teachers are given the opportunity to volunteer and receive training in how to help students with issues of bullying. Their classrooms are identified to students as a “Safe Zone” through a sign displayed on their door.
The Bullying Prevention Task Force would like to invite you to join us. We will be meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 6:00 – 7:15 at Central Services South located on the Horton Middle School campus. You can contact Tracy Fowler, Executive Director of Student Services and Support Programs at email@example.com or 919-542-6400 if you have any questions about the Bullying Prevention Task Force.
