Through proactive policy, programming, and positive school climate development, Colchester School District works vigorously to prohibit harassment and bullying and also provides a variety of supports to our students around the issue of bullying.
Every school in the district actively works to prevent these issues in order to foster a safe and positive learning environment. At Colchester High School, for example, all administrators regularly attend training around the issue of bullying and violence prevention. Aspects of CHS’s Teacher Advisory (TA) program, which is designed to allow all students to develop a rapport with at least one teacher beginning with their freshman year through the end of their junior year, also addresses bullying, as well.
