I begin this by saying that we by no means have it figured out, but we work to educate our students on bullying. We also work hard to create a safe place so that students feel that they can come to teachers, administrators, and guidance counselors when they feel that they are being bullied. It's are hope that this will allow students the chance to be open with each other and the staff to keep away hidden bullying. We also work to teach teachers to be aware of the signs of bullying as well as the ways to address in in the classroom. Too often, teachers don't want to rock the boat, and so we work to ensure teachers know how to handle bullying as well as how to report it.
We also work to educate parents. Too often parents who are called in brush it off as just a part of adolescence. They too have to be instructed on the dangers bullying.
