Following recent posts on bullying, we wanted to pass along this event to Viewers: Tomorrow, the Santa Barbara Unified School District in partnership with UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz Graduate School of Education will present the premiere screening of “Stand Tall: Lessons That Teach Respect and Prevent Bullying”. That’s Thursday, March 22 at 3:30 pm at La Colina Junior High School, 4025 Foothill Road. The event is free and open to the public; to RSVP or for questions call (805) 963-4338, ext. 6206.
The video on bullying contains an introduction by UCSB’s Dr. Jane Close Conoley and includes several Santa Barbara Charter School students. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on tools and strategies to keep schools safe and promote a positive learning community. Dr. Jane Conoley, Dean of UCSB’s Gevirtz School, will moderate the discussion, which will include author Suzanne Peck, Superintendent of the Santa Barbara Unified School District Dave Cash, and Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley.
