Step 6 – Implement the Plan

step 6In this sixth step the school implements their Rights Respecting School Action Plan.

Schools can consider having a kick-off week, assemblies, introductory lesson plans, letters and information sessions for parents, visual displays in the school, etc. to motivate and educate the school community.

Schools should encourage all members of the school community to stay engaged by making daily choices and decisions consistent with the rights and principles in the Convention. Time and space should be created for teachers to share their successes, challenges, and ideas to foster a supportive environment of rights respecting professionals.

Photos, videos and examples of good practice throughout the year should be kept so the school can reflect on the success of the initiative later. Any media coverage of the initiative at the school should be shared with the RRS Facilitator.
