Consent Event @ BHS

BHS teachers Mrs. Lockhart and Mrs. Isaly have been working with a group of students to put on the BHS Consent Event, next Wednesday May 15 at 6:30pm. This will be a night of education for both students and parents/guardians. Part of the event will include looking at data collected from the attached student and adult surveys about perceived and actual understanding around consent, healthy relationships, and how to be a good bystander or “upstander,” speaking out when you see something inappropriate.

If you are interested and able to take the survey, it would help provide more data for the BHS Consent Event! Just Click on the links for the appropriate survey. Thanks for your participation, and we hope to see you at the BHS Consent Event on May 15! (Free snacks and childcare will be provided!)
