STAND UP 2013 IMPORTANT INFORMATION
STAND UP 2013 is happening on Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at the DCU Center Arena. Tickets have been mailed to all schools that have signed up to participate. If you have not received your tickets, please contact Kari Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Directions and parking information will be sent by email to all schools. If you have not received your directions and parking information, please contact Kari.
This year, we are asking all participating schools to select three students to represent their school in the ACTION CAUCUS. The ACTION CAUCUS will be conducted in a separate room adjacent to the arena and will take place concurrent to the event’s town meeting discussion. This session will be facilitated by local educators and staff from the Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Center (MARC).
At the ACTION CAUCUS, your three students will be asked to present your school’s anti-bullying activity plan and ideas and will receive feedback and ideas from student representatives from a paired school. Then, it’s their turn to listen and offer suggestions to their partnered school representatives. At the end of the Caucus, your students will fill out an ACTION CAUCUS BLUE CARD outlining your planned anti-bullying activities. To sign up for the ACTION CAUCUS, please click here.
Action Caucus Teacher Preparation Guide: A guide for the Action Caucus has been prepared by Chelsea High School educator Kristen Almquist. This guide will help you prepare your students for this year’s action caucus. To download the Preparation Guide, please click here.
