Fort Worth ISD Offers Sneak Peeks of “It’s Not Okay – At Any Age” Video
Can you spot a bully on the job? That’s the question posed in the soon-to-be-released video “It’s Not Okay – At Any Age.” Fort Worth ISD is expanding the “It’s Not Okay” anti-bullying campaign to include adults. After all, we can’t expect our children to treat one another with respect if adults are not doing it. Over the next few weeks, we will offer previews of the video. Each trailer will highlight a particular scenario from the video – adults behaving badly in what could be any school, anywhere.
Watch preview #1 now!
Look closely! You may recognize some of the actors. Students and staff from Fort Worth ISD, as well as actors from Fort Worth’s community theaters, play key roles. The video is hosted by Fort Worth City Councilmember Joel Burns and Fort Worth ISD middle school student Mia Cruz.
It’s estimated 1 in 3 workers in the U.S. has been bullied on the job. Workplace bullying and disrespect usually take the form of verbal abuse, intimidation and sabotage. Fort Worth ISD is out to stop bullying and disrespect in the workplace as well as on the schoolyard. The “It’s Not Okay – At Any Age” creates awareness of the problem and shows that everyone has a choice – to be respectful or disrespectful, to be professional or unprofessional, and to be a positive role model or a big bully.
The District intends for all employees to view and discuss the “It’s Not Okay – At Any Age” video. Our Human Capital Management Department will also use it in training new employees. For more information, visit www.fwisd.org/safe.
