CJHS-RC Anti-bullying Programs
 
CJHS-RC Bullying Statement:
CJHS-RC wants our school to be a safe place for all students.  We recognize that bullying and harassment are prevalent problems with significant, adverse consequences.  Bullying and harassment interfere with students' abilities to learn and achieve high standards.  No student should be subjected to bullying or harassment that interferes with the students' opportunity to learn, whether based on race, color, national origin, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion, or other characteristics.  CJHS-RC recognizes bullying as aggressive behavior that is intentional, repetitive, and involves an imbalance of power and strength between the bully and the target of bullying.  CJHS-RC's policy is to address any such behavior and to work with students and their parents to remedy the problem.
 
CJHS-RC Antibullying Initiative:
CJHS-RC has in place programs to promote character and in turn create an atmosphere on our campus to prevent bullying before it starts.  We use and stress a Character Counts program that emphasizes the importance of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.
CJHS-RC has also established an antibullying team of students and faculty, the ABC Team, to help monitor and prevent bullying on our campus.  The ABC Team, Antibullying Crew, is comprised of five girls and five boys from each grade level along with administrators and teachers.  The team of students will act as hall monitors and report incidences of bully to the Principal or Assistant Principal.  The Team will also act as a go-between for students who might otherwise be reluctant to report bullying to an adult.
 
Reporting: 
It is important for each student to report bullying or harassment to the nearest adult or ABC Team member. 
Students my also use the CISD bullying hotline by calling toll-free (866) 346-2769.
