The Ministry of Education launched the ERASE Bullying strategy in 2012-2013. It is a comprehensive strategy that includes a confidential reporting tool for students and/or parents, training on creating safe school cultures and violent threat risk assessment for every school in the province.
Every BC school district has a designated Safe School Coordinator as part of the ERASE strategy. In SD 6 Rocky Mountain please contact Viveka Johnson - Director of Instruction, Learning Support Services (250-342-9243 ext. 4674).
Rocky Mountain School District is committed to creating and maintaining school environments in which students, staff, parents, and community members feel safe. Schools respond to all threats of violence using the Violent Threat Risk Assessment as outlined by our Regional Protocol. We are committed to keeping our students and communities safe for all. The brochure distributed at the start of each school year to every student included below represents 'fair notice' to our students and our communities that SD 6 will address all threats to self and/or others.
