Is there anything a parent worries about more than their child’s safety? Is there anything more important to your school than the safety of your students?
Although bullying is not new, it has become a hot topic in the news, on teacher blogs, and across listservs, as disastrous consequences have forced us all to pay attention. Educators struggle to find ways to create healthy communities where bullying doesn’t happen. It has become more complicated as the means and opportunities have increased with increased technology and the opportunity for covert online bullying. The consequences of student suicide has resulted in changing laws and policies, which keep this subject on the top of people’s minds—especially administrators and school faculty and staff.
This Webinar series is designed to walk you through this complex subject matter covering areas such as the profile of a victim, the many faces of a bully, technology’s ever-changing role, laws and policies, how to create a safe environment, peer programs against bullying, educating parents, and much more.
