Anti-Bullying Program

Preventing Bullying, Intimidation, and Harassment

 

Bullying, intimidation, and harassment diminish a student’s ability to learn and a school’s ability to educate.  Preventing students from engaging in these disruptive behaviors is an important District 57 goal.

 

Bullying is prohibited during school sponsored programs and activities, while in school or on school property including the bus, and through the transmission of information from a school computer or other similar electronic school equipment.

 

District 57 has adopted Olweus bullying prevention program materials to be used for classroom-based instruction and school-wide implementation.  District 57 staff explicitly teach students age appropriate positive behavior expectations to achieve our goal of providing a safe and caring learning environment.

 

In order to reduce bullying and to prevent new bullying incidents at your child's school, it's important to report bullying in a timely manner. Students are always encouraged to seek out an adult (parent, teacher, instructional assistant, principal, assistant principal, etc.) to report a bullying incident. As a parent and guardian, if your child shares with you an incident or interaction with a peer that may be bullying, please contact your building administrator.
