Safe & Accepting Schools

Pink Shirt Day, a day in late February that gives students the opportunity to join the national anti-bullying movement, is an important event in our schools. Celebrating this day is part of the ongoing bullying prevention and intervention measures in place in our schools, across the UCDSB.

From school surveys to greeting students at the door, formally recognizing acts of kindness to having anti-bullying student advocates, work is being done within your child’s school to promote respectful, safe and inclusive environments all year round. The UCDSB wants to ensure that you, as a parent/guardian, are aware of your school’s anti-bullying policy, the actions that are being taken to address bullying, how it can be reported and possible outcomes.

You can find your school’s bullying prevention and intervention plan on your school website under For Families > Handbook > Safe & Accepting Schools.

The Ministry of Education is interested in how Ontario schools are taking steps to minimize bullying to ensure students are learning in safe and caring environments. As part of their measures to fulfill this promise,
a new survey by the ministry has been released to gauge the effectiveness of school anti-bullying measures.

The survey seeks input from parents, students, and educators and can be found here. The survey will accept responses until March 31, 2020.

We encourage you to take the opportunity to learn more about the strategies in place at your school and to complete the survey, either on your own or with your child. We know that students learn best in safe and caring environments, and we strive to accomplish this.
