About the Session:

This session will introduce the Respect in School online program.  The Alberta Ministry of Education has made safe and respectful schools a priority by offering Respect in School online training free of charge. The program is designed, specifically, to provide school leaders (teachers, admins, EAs, custodians, parent volunteers, etc.) with the tools they need to foster a safe and respectful learning environment.  Respect in School is a 90-minute online training program that includes content on preventing, identifying, responding to and reporting incidents of bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination (BAHD) in schools.

This session will provide a brief history of Respect Group, steps to implement the program, FAQs, and testimonials from Alberta-based colleagues who have implemented the program in their school division.

Participants will then have the opportunity to ask questions and are encouraged to use the remainder of the session to register for the Respect in School program and start the process of certification.
