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. Bullying is associated with negative outcomes for those who are bullied, including substance use, suicide, and impacts on physical and mental health. There are several reasons behind school violence; in some cases, being the victim of bullying could play a contributing role.

Everyone at school can work together to create an environment where bullying is not acceptable. Districts and schools should adopt policies to help prevent bullying and cyberbullying, such as school climate initiatives and support for digital citizenship and positive character development. Procedures for monitoring student behavior in school and online can help schools identify at-risk behaviors and provide interventions before they create safety issues.
