Resolution No. 21-22-08 National Bullying Prevention Month.pdf
Summary: The National Bullying Prevention campaign was created in 2006 with a one-week event which has now evolved into a month-long effort that encourages everyone to take an active role in the bullying prevention movement. We know that bullying can lead to school avoidance, decreased self-esteem, depression, and even self-harm.

During the month of October communities and schools can unite nationwide to raise awareness of bullying prevention through events, activities, outreach and education. This is a time to educate our students and staff that bullying prevention is practiced in our schools and that students know how to handle the situation if they are bullied.
