Anti Bullying committee

CHOOSE YOUR ANTI-BULLYING COMMITTEE TEAM!

Our focus at REPORTBULLYING.COM is on behavioral solutions.

If bullying is a symptom of bad behavior we must find a solution and make a serious commitment in correcting this behavior.

One solution is to implement a proactive anti-bullying program. 

One part of our anti-bullying program is to build an ANTI-BULLYING COMMITTEE.  

The committee will be responsible to integrate activities and anti-bullying education character lessons into their daily/weekly/monthly curriculum.

Benefits of a committee:

  • For students – building more confidence in reporting the bullying. Educating on how to create a safe school environment.
  • For Parents – Knowing the school is taking initiative in providing a safe school environment for their children.
  • For Teachers – Will be more knowledgeable in recognizing signs of bullying. Reporting the incidents objectively and measurably.

Goal of the committee:

  • To continuously promote anti-bullying.
  • To continuously educate students, parents, teachers and community on anti-bullying.
  • To provide and maintain a safe school and safe community environment.

Ideas to assemble your members:

  • Send out emails to all teachers and parents announcing this new established committee.
  • Morning announcements that encourage students to join.
  • Posters.
