    Preventing Harassment, Bullying and Intimidation

    A guide for parents

    What parents should know and do

    Information for parents to use to help prevent bullying and risky online behaviors
    If the bullying occurs during the school day, contact the administrator of your child’s school to report bullying. The administrator will then follow-up with involved students to confirm the report of bullying. Administrators will document all of the information for each situation, and if necessary, will report to law enforcement. Administrators may also refer the bullying victim to counseling, and will follow-up on the well-being of any involved students in the school through direct and parent contacts. Students will receive disciplinary action in keeping with school policies for violations that occur at school or off-campus when violations create an unsafe or disruptive effect.

    Tips for parents on identifying and stopping bullying and harassment
    Encourage your child to speak with you about bullying at school. Studies show that children often don’t tell their parents or other adults about bullying because they believe that the adults will not believe them. Children may also think that they should be able to solve their own problems. Other children may be afraid that telling an adult will result in worse treatment from the child doing the bullying. Below are tips on ways to identify if your child is being bullied. These tips are from the Steps to Respect program.
