Although every October is National Bullying Prevention Month, we need to prioritize bullying prevention year round. According to the National Center for Educational Statistic’s most recent research, 22 percent of students report being bullied during the school year.
If we apply this statistic to this school year, we can assume that more than 11 million of the approximately 50.1 million students enrolled in K-12 public schools will report being bullied.
So, what can we do? School-based bullying prevention programs can decrease bullying by up to 25 percent. PublicSchoolWORKS’ Student Bullying & Violence Prevention Program (SBVPP) is a complete program that includes online training for staff and students, reporting systems and additional communication tools designed specifically to help districts support students experiencing bullying, violence and other school safety issues. This case study describes how the SBVPP helped a district in Texas overcome student safety issues. Contact us today to learn how your school can start benefiting from the SBVPP.
