Promote Respect

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.



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.
