Respect for All
Respect for All
"Each student and staff member brings to our public school community the richness of our city’s cultural diversity and the desire for respect.
It is the policy of the Department to maintain a safe and supportive learning environment that is free from harassment, intimidation and/or bullying and from discrimination on account of actual or perceived race, color, citizenship/immigration status, religion, creed, national origin, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation or weight. The policy prohibits such behavior by students against other students and by staff against students."
Please find handout related to the "Respect for All" initiative at this link:
"Social workers serve as advocates, mentors, therapists, analysts, community liaisons, activists, and visionaries...assess students’ overall functioning, provide therapeutic and crisis management services, advocate for children, connect families with community resources, and facilitate workshops for the school community on topics like stress management and mental health." -Vanessa Velez.
Ms. Bianca works closely with students and families to ensure their mental and physical safety, support them through navigating the rough terrain of adolescent life, and help students achieve their ultimate success.
