Step 1 – Learn about RRS

step 1In this first step the school learns of the Rights Respecting Schools (RRS) initiative and ultimately decides whether they wish to commit to the process of becoming a Rights Respecting School.

The process begins when a relationship is established between the RRS Facilitator and the interested school. The RRS Facilitator has been trained to support the school in its journey to becoming a Rights Respecting School.

The school then hosts two presentations delivered by the RRS Facilitator:

  1. Administration Presentation: One for school administrator(s) and invitees from the school board and key teachers
  2. Whole School Presentation: One for key members of the school community (teachers, administrators, support staff, student council, parent council/parent volunteers other community members)

After the presentations, the school community decides whether it wishes to become a Rights Respecting School.
