Promote Respect is the CCPS means of educating parents, staff, and students about bullying prevention. It outlines procedures to report, investigate, and intervene when bullying behavior occurs. Promote Respect was developed using research-based practices and it fulfills the state mandate requiring each school board to implement policy and procedures to educate stakeholders about bullying in order to create a respectful school climate free of bullying.
Please review the information in Promote Respect – Parent Edition.
If someone is being disrespected or bullied, contact your child’s teacher, a school counselor, or the administrators.
If you prefer, complete the Crenshaw Bullying Incident Report and submit it to school in person or in a sealed envelope addressed to the school principal. The information in the report is considered confidential.
School phones and e-mail accounts will be monitored ONLY during regular school hours on days when school is in session for students. While the average response time should be within one school day, please be aware that it may take two school days for a school official to contact you.
The safety and well-being of students is a community concern, and there are a number of community supports in place:
- If you have a life-threatening or mental health emergency, call 911.
- If you have knowledge of a crime that has been committed, contact the Chesterfield County police at 804-748-1251.
- If you have information about a serious mental health-related concern, contact the Chesterfield County crisis hotline at 804-748-6356.
What does Promote Respect look like for students at Crenshaw Elementary?
School expectations emphasizing a respectful community are taught to all students yearly and reinforced daily. Expectations are aligned with the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) model and the Chesterfield County Public Schools Core Values (Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Accountability).
To deal with disrespectful and bullying behaviors, students are encouraged to use variations of the STOP, WALK, TALK strategy. It is reviewed and practiced with students yearly in Promote Respect lessons taught by the school counselors. Teachers encourage the use of STOP, WALK, TALK to develop assertive skills in students and to emphasize caring adults students should approach with concerns.
