Mariposa County Project Respect



Mariposa County Schools are committed to addressing issues of bullying among our children and youth. Research shows that a comprehensive and coordinated effort will provide the type of change that we hope to see.

Steps to Respect, a program from The Committee for Children, provides the framework for our efforts in the schools. In addition to the Steps to Respect curriculum, we have several youth development program in the secondary schools. Staff development and support services are provided to Mariposa County Schools through a cooperative Memorandum of Understanding.
