Theresa Campbell, ERASE Bullying’s lead trainer and president of Safer Schools Together, said the anti-bullying strategy divides the province into eight different regions.
“(Government) looked at the eight regions and thought about a student from either Grade 8 to 12, one from each region (for the committee), allowing for an additional four positions from the independent schools,” she said.
The students will also be tasked with developing a social media guideline for the province’s 60 school districts and independent schools. Campbell said parents and districts will also be consulted on the strategy via districts’ safe schools coordinators and the BC Coalition of Parent Advisory Councils.
Campbell will be one of two adult subject-matter experts responsible for guiding the the committee’s discussions to get the most feedback out of students as possible.
