No Place For Hate
No Place for Hate is a self-directed program helping all stakeholders take the lead on improving and maintaining school climate so all students can thrive. All secondary schools are participating in the initiative. To receive the No Place for Hate designation, each school must complete the following:
- A survey assessing school climate for bullying and bias related behaviors
- The formation of a No Place for Hate committee
- The signing of the Resolution of Respect
- Designing and implementing three school-wide anti-bias or bullying prevention activities
Upon completion of the required program components, each school will receive a No Place for Hate banner that can be proudly displayed in the school.
Thus far, all secondary schools have formed No Place for Hate committees, administered the survey, and signed the Resolution of Respect. Schools are now working to design and implement their school wide No Place for Hate activities. Beginning Dec. 16, 2019, Peer advocates and the No Place for Hate Student Committee Chair facilitated student-led forums educating their peers on the impact of racial insults and hate speech. The student group collaborated with the State High administration, the Coordinator of 6-12 English, and State High’s REACT team to execute these forums.
