Follow Up Report Regarding Bullying Prevention.pdf
Background: At its meeting on September 24, 2019, the Board approved Resolution 1819R-017 by Director Phillips regarding bullying prevention.

The Administration recognizes the critical impact that bullying can have on student safety and academic achievement. The Administration acknowledges that Administrative Policy 8.52, initially adopted in 2010, lays the groundwork and provides a framework for bullying prevention efforts across the district. As suggested in the resolution, and reflected in the bullying policy, comprehensive bullying prevention requires attention to not just the specifics of bullying as a form of aggression, but also to the universal practices which both deter bullying and promote a physically, emotionally, and socially safe learning environment. These universal practices include work that has begun including PBIS, restorative practices, and social and emotional learning programming and practices.

As requested, attached is a report reviewing each of the suggestions of the District Advisory Council’s Ad Hoc Committee for Bullying Prevention, including the feasibility of implementing each suggestion. In addition to the feasibility considerations for each strategy, implementing a combination of these strategies district-wide would require attention to and analysis of district capacity, resources, and systems for implementation.
