MARIEMONT, Ohio - Mariemont City Schools announced Thursday that it will launch a comprehensive bullying prevention program at each school building in the district.
After months of preparation and study involving parents, students and staff, the school district will begin Friday.
“Historically, we have addressed bullying prevention through successful programs at all levels in our district, but we have not developed a coordinated and systematic K-12 approach to bullying prevention that is based upon our own data until this year,” Mariemont City Schools Superintendent Paul Imhoff said in a press release. “The prevention of bullying cannot be a one-year focus – we must remain persistently vigilant and work together as a community to maintain a safe and positive environment for all of our children to ensure they can thrive academically, socially, physically and emotionally.”
In order to formally implement the new policies, the school district will hold a series of events that highlight the problems with bullying at each school building. The events will include a reveal of student-created anti-bullying videos, skits, a recap of survey results and a discussion about the school climate.
