Coordinate with other schools in your district: Students will do best if they receive consistent bullying prevention training throughout their schooling as they move through grade levels and among schools. Assess the extent of the problem: Administer separate school wide surveys to students and staff members to identify prevalence, attitudes, knowledge, gaps in perception, and specific areas or aspects of the problem that you may need to target, such as locations or times when bullying occurs most often and particular concerns such as sexual harassment or "cyber bullying.“ Establish a coordinating team. This group will help develop and implement school wide activities. Select individuals who are knowledgeable about the issue and respected in the school community and who are good communicators and consensus builders (include a mental health professional, parents, and students). A separate specially trained team should provide intensive interventions to individual students. Involve the entire school community: Be prepared for some initial resistance. Staff members may not see a need for a program or may feel overwhelmed at the thought of adding yet another objective to the year. Students may be skeptical if bullying has persisted for a long time. Parents may be concerned about diverting resources from the core curriculum or unconvinced that all students, including their child, will benefit by learning anti-bullying skills. Elicit regular input and provide consistent information to all groups. Source:http://www.nasponline.org/resources/principals/nassp_bullying.aspx
