Bullying Prevention

No bullying image

Bullying has three key components--unwanted, aggressive behavior; a real or perceived power imbalance, and repetition; and the potential to be repeated over time. The combination of these three factors creates a situation that moves beyond conflict to become persistent persecution.

Bullying has become a serious issue with young people nationwide.  It affects students at every level, from elementary to high school.  In an effort to proactively address the issue of bullying the District of Columbia Public Schools has created a Bullying Prevention Policy.  The policy lays out clearly, the definition of bullying and the steps required by schools to address it.  The entire policy is available here.
