The best I have seen in the solid school antibullying policies are Miami
Country Day School and the Broward County Schools. I think you can get them
They define address and create community buy in to resolve bullying as a
primary issue that must be addressed to have a safe environment in school.
The policy and the resulting procedures make it safe for a bystander or a
victim to speak up and know what will happen next.
Please email or call me if you would like to talk more about this topic.
