The theme for this year’s Kentucky Safe Schools Week (October 21-27) is “BULLYING: Be a Part of the Cure." Emphasis is placed on how each individual student and staff member can be empowered to become part of the "cure" and stop bullying in their school by helping to create a healthy, safe  learning environment.

To ensure that all environments in Kentucky schools are safe,

I pledge to do my part to STOP BULLYING by (check if you agree):

  C ARING MORE; Considering others' feelings
  U NDERSTANDING ALL; Appreciating others' differences
  Learning to respect myself and others
  E DUCATING OTHERS;   Sharing that I will not bully or allow it
