Why am I here?
• Understand bullying
• Be prepared for environment
• How it is presented
• What to do
• How to report it
• How to make BLS safer
As an adult, bullying is...
“Threatening bodily harm”
Everyone is affected by bullying
Like anything else, practice makes perfect
160,000 kids stay home from school every day due to bullying!
Thats about 4x the population of the Fenway-Kenmore area!
42% of kids report being cyber bullied.
But not everyone reports it
THE MAKE UP OF A TYPICAL SCHOOL
Bully - Henchmen
(None of my business)
Wants to help but
doesn't know how
Even if deleted, accounts can be found
Keep it classy: no vulgar/inappropriate language
Don't post things that can get you into trouble
People can/will comment
If you wouldn't say it to ANY adult, DON'T POST IT
Police use "Keywords" and are looking even more!
Don't post personal information and check your privacy settings.
Don't post things just to get more followers or friends.
Keep the drama off the Internet. Everyone will appreciate it.
Stay out of other's drama. Don't get involved in arguments.
Make eye contact
Do not argue with a teacher in front of the class.
If you feel that you are right, respectfully go to them after class and discuss it.
In emails, don't use text talk, be formal.
And if you want a response, email at a reasonable hour
Take a Guess
What do you think were the top 2 reasons people gave for bullying?
1. Retaliation (“He/She/They started it first”)
2. “I was just kidding/It was a joke”
Where does bullying occur?
Crack The Code
Breaking The Code of Silence
(Learn the Difference)
Ratting, Tattling or Snitching
Main objective: To get a person in trouble
Reporting or Telling
Main objective: To seek safety for self or others
Also will create a way to get help for the student with the bully behaviors
Stand TALL and Stay Calm
Walk Away and Avoid the Situation

Any teacher (HR, academic)
Guidance Counselor, Nurses, or other school staff
