October Bulllying Prevention Awareness Month
October marks Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, an important time to focus on and raise awareness of the risk of bullying and cyberbullying in school communities. Bullying is widespread in the United States, and the behavior can threaten students’ physical and emotional safety as well as impact their social and academic success at school. Everyone at school can work together to create an environment where bullying is not acceptable – whether that be in the classroom, on school grounds, or online. Read on for resources, programs, and tools kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) schools, educators, parents, and students can use to help identify, prevent, and address bullying and cyberbullying.
