Join us as we make Monticello High School “No Place for Hate”

The Monticello Central School District launched its “No Place for Hate”  initiative during the 2018-2019 school year and continues it this school year, fostering an atmosphere of inclusivity and kindness.

The No Place for Hate Committee in the district will be comprised of MHS students, administrators, faculty and two community members. To that end, the district is seeking two resident volunteers to help make this program a success.

No Place for Hate (NPFH) is a designation from The Anti-Defamation League that schools may earn after utilizing the NPFH’s research-based framework to enhance students’ understanding of diversity, bias and social justice through a series of active learning projects. 

Because the NPFH initiative is a framework rather than a prescribed curriculum, each district has the opportunity to create a plan of action based upon their own unique needs and challenges. Our committee will collaborate to identify the needs of our community, discuss preventative measures, plan events and set goals for this initiative. 

Interested parties should be enthusiastic, solutions-driven residents of the district who are available to attend meetings from 2:30-3:15 p.m. in room 323 at the high school on the following dates:

  • September 18
  • October 16

  • December 18
  • January 15
