The Harmony Public Schools have accepted a proposal by ADL to provide anti-bullying and cyberbullying workshops at nearly 30 of their high schools across Texas. The comprehensive trainings will be given to faculty, staff, students, parents and family members in the schools over the next four years.
In addition to the workshops, many of the schools will also receive copies of ADL’s Making Diversity Count Curriculum, a follow-up webinar, and ADL’s Anti-Bias Curriculum. Harmony Public Schools plans to introduce the training in three high schools the first year, but will substantially increase the number of schools participating each year thereafter during the four-year period.
ADL Associate Director of Education Susan Shaw said: “We’re pleased to have this opportunity to work with the Harmony Schools.” The Harmony Public Schools are college preparatory charter schools focusing on math, science, engineering, and computer technologies. Many of the students in the schools are from under-served communities.
