OLWEUS

The OLWEUS Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP) is one of the best-known bullying prevention programs.  OBPP  has been proven to prevent or reduce bullying. 

The goals of OBPP are to reduce bullying problems and prevent new bullying problems from happening.  The program also works to make relationships better with students.  The program is for all students, not just those who are being bullied or who are bullying others.  There are several components of this program to ensure the success.  One being, this program will be integrated with our school-wide character education program.  This will be done through our guidance counselors as she holds her monthly lessons.  Teachers will be holding class meetings weekly to present lessons that deal with different types of bullying issues. 

Parents and guardians play a key role in this program.  Your child will be asked to tell an adult at school and at home if he or she is bullied or sees bullying happening.  It will be very important that you take any bullying seriously and tell our school staff.  Our school staff members are being trained to deal with bullying situations when we are told about them.
