Second Annual 24/7 Respect Program Kick-Off Event at the Trotter K-8 School in Dorchester
On Monday, March 9, 2020, the Boston Public Schools (BPS) launched the second annual 24/7 Respect program at an event at the Trotter K-8 School in Dorchester. The 24/7 Respect program is aimed at teaching students the importance of treating everyone with respect whether it's in-person or online.
Throughout the week of March 9, all BPS sixth-grade students participated in the groundbreaking 24/7 Respect program to learn about their rights and responsibilities in preventing and addressing bias-based and sexual misconduct, whether in person, through text, or on social media.
During the launch event, participants heard from the 24/7 Respect student hosts and got to witness a 24/7 Respect lesson in action. Notable guests included Kim Janey, City Council President, City Councilor, District 7, Jeri Robinson, BPS School Committee member, and Jessica Tang, the Boston Teachers Union President.
