Superintendent's Message

Bully Training

First of all, I would like to welcome you back to the new school year! I look forward to another great year!

Prior to the start of school, every employee in the Hawthorne School District was given the opportunity to attend a research-based training on bully prevention. The Olweus Bullying Prevention Program was brought to us through a grant. This program addresses all aspects of bullying and provides our staff with tools and strategies to use with our students to address this behavior.

All participants in the training worked to identify the types of behaviors that constitute bullying and to identify the roles of various individuals in the act(s). We plan to implement this program at our schools to address this very serious issue and to work toward elimination of these behaviors on our campuses. Implementation will be introduced in stages with full utilization expected by December 2018.

If you would like more information on the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, please contact your site dean, counselor, or administrator. I am certain they would be happy to share the information with you.

As we begin the year, please follow me on twitter at Dr.M@HSD_hmorgan I post events and accomplishments from all of our schools and would love to share these with you.

I am honored to serve the Hawthorne community and privileged to have the opportunity to educate your children. I look forward to seeing you at a school site or event!
