Anti-bullying activities are extended all year long at Loch Raven Technical Academy. Principal Stacey Johnson has implemented a school-wide mentoring program to address bullying and other social issues within the school. The purpose of this program is to ensure that the staff has connections with every student in the school to reduce bullying behaviors, encourage and monitor academic success, monitor student attendance, work on student organization and to teach character education lessons.

During monthly mentoring sessions, the staff meets with the students for 30 minutes. Every child in the school has a mentor they can speak with when they have problems or concerns. These mentors are available to help students, as are their regularly scheduled teachers.

Topics covered in the year’s mentoring sessions include; bullying, mindset, respect, responsibility, perseverance, test taking skills, tolerance and safety.

Students have been very receptive to the program, taking the opportunity to get to know their mentors and addressing any issues they might face. It is the hope of the staff of Loch Raven Technical Academy that through these mentoring sessions, students’ lives can be impacted for the better.
