Bullying is a serious issue and has become an epidemic in our school systems. Statistics show that a student is bullied every seven minutes in our schools nationwide. If parents, educators, and members of the community work together, we can have a significant impact on this problem. In this workshop, you’ll learn the signs of bullying, and whether or not your child is a bully or is being bullied. We’ll provide intervention strategies on how to “bully proof” your child. We’ll share best practices of anti-bullying modules and samples of policies and procedures used successfully at other schools.
