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.
