A school board on Nova Scotia’s South Shore that dealt with racially charged incidents involving a noose and a Confederate flag says it has made changes to better respond to similar incidents in the future.
The South Shore Regional School Board has amended its race relations, cross-cultural understanding and human rights policy to provide more direction to teachers, students and staff on how to report and follow up on incidents.
The policy also lists examples of ways in which teachers can educate students about cultural understanding.
