01 Oct CCSD celebrates Week of Respect, Oct. 5-9

The Clark County School District (CCSD) will observe Week of Respect during the first week of October. Governor Sisolak has proclaimed October 5- 9, 2020, as the “Week of Respect.”

CCSD developed the online Canvas Week of Respect 2020-2021 Guide in an effort to support schools in implementing activities that support a safe and respectful learning environment. The guide provides suggested resources, activities, and lesson plan ideas with a focus on enhancing a safe and respectful learning environment by clicking here.

Schools across CCSD participate in activities every day to emphasize a safe and respectful learning environment and we are asking all of our students and employees to wear blue on “Get Your Blue On” Friday. This unifying gesture demonstrates that CCSD is committed to reducing instances of bullying in our schools and treating each other with respect.  “Blue” is the symbol of unity and success for our community.

Share images or videos of your school’s Week of Respect activities on social media using the #CCSDGetYourBlueOn.

The goal of the week is to decrease bullying / cyberbullying in Nevada by creating a culture of understanding, empathy, and equality. During this week we will offer activities, events, and community awareness to bring awareness and respect for others.

In addition to the guide, the Nevada Department of Education has developed a website that focuses on resources in bullying prevention for students, families, and school staff.  The site is http://bullyfreezone.nv.gov (Links to an external site.).

The “Week of Respect” launches a yearlong effort to enhance a safe and respectful learning environment. CCSD’s “Week of Respect” theme is “Be an Upstander.”
