Create a Safer School Environment by Addressing Bullying and Cyberbullying
Bullying and cyberbullying threaten students’ physical and emotional safety and can impact their social and academic success at school. As students head back to school, parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help students prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy.
SchoolSafety.gov’s Bullying and Cyberbullying topic page offers a variety of Federal resources and strategies to help school communities identify at-risk behaviors, adopt school climate initiatives, and provide interventions before safety issues arise.
