KY Safe Schools Week 10/17 - 10/23
KY Safe Schools Week 10/17 - 10/23
The Kentucky Center for School Safety (KCSS), in recognition of Kentucky Safe Schools Week, October 17-23, is challenging every school across Kentucky to take pledge of R-E-S-P-E-C-T . This pledge encompasses the idea that respect of one’s self and others will help to eliminate problems surrounding a variety of school safety issues. 
The theme for this year’s Safe Schools Week will span topics from bullying, cyber bullying, sexting, to suicide. Teacher and parent resources are available online at the KCSS website kycss.org/index.html
  • Realize that violent actions have real consequences and do not solve problems.
  • Encourage others and myself to be responsible for the internet sites I search as well as social network communications.
  • Stand up for anyone who is being bullied and never bully anyone myself.
  • Prevent bullying by reporting any suspicious behavior.
  • Explore my options by talking to a trusted adult when I feel sad or alone.
  • Control my texting and cell phone use, by not sending/sharing anything that is inappropriate.
  • Take a stand and be respectful to adults, students and myself.

Participation is tracked in a real-time map that shows how many people from each district have taken the pledge kycss.org/pledge-resp/results.php
