How to Prevent Bullying

Published: 5/29/2024 8:15 AM

​​It is highly recommended that schools evaluate their Safe Schools Report, School Report Card, individual school behavior data, as well as any in-house data that focus on bullying prevention.

Please keep in mind that the best bullying prevention programs are those that either concentrate on creating a positive school climate or work in tandem with a positive school climate program.

The following are suggestions for educators to consider when evaluating quality bullying prevention programs.  There are other nationally recognized programs available. However what is important is that school staff should find what bullying prevention program works best for their school and community.
