Culture of Respect Training Mandatory for Secondary Students
MCPS is committed to ensuring students are equipped with information to recognize signs of bullying/cyberbullying, harassment (including sexual harassment), hate-bias incidents, hazing, intimidation and student gender norms.
An online student training lesson has been developed for students in grades 6 through 12. The Culture of Respect online training lesson provides critical information that will help students better recognize the signs of inappropriate behaviors, including the various ways to report alleged/concerning incidents. The training includes a student survey that will provide school leaders with data to assess the current culture and climate of respect at their schools and determine potential next steps to plan for improvements.
The training should take about 30 minutes to complete and will be accessible to students via their myMCPS Classroom homepage beginning December 1, 2020. Students are asked to complete the training by January 29, 2021.
Students will earn two Student Service Learning hours when they complete the training.
