To create a school environment of inclusivity and respect, the Calvert County Public Schools has developed and implemented an anti-bullying plan. The program relies on prevention measures to stop bullying before it starts. Students learn how to respectfully interact with one another and how to appreciate differences that make each person unique. Intervention strategies are taught to all students and staff, so they know how to appropriately respond if a situation of harassment or intimidation arises. Parents are also encouraged to join the process of making school a safer place, by talking to their children about appropriate behaviors. More detailed information about this program is available by calling 410-535-1700.4

Current Initiatives

The Potter's House Initiative is a proposed program to address homelessness in Calvert County. The plan involves purchasing a building to house those without a home and offer services to help residents get back on their feet. The initiative specifically targets men who have a drug addiction, as well as those who have become homeless after being involved in the criminal justice system. A 12-month aftercare program would ensure all those receiving treatment are clean and have the job and social skills required to rejoin society and be a productive member of the community. Questions about the proposed initiative may be directed to the Southern Maryland Rescue Ministries at 1-800-918-5615.5
