  • I hope that school authorities strengthen ties with students as well as parents in making sure that bullying issues are lessened and eventually be gone. I am a parent and I'm worried and I don't want anyone to experience threatening cases like this especially my kids. As a way of helping everyone especially the parents, who still find it quite hard to manage issues like this, I found this great application which featured safety app which gets me connected to a Safety Network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids with just a press of a Panic Button.

  3. 3. Before We Intervene…….. Prior to implementing BP-PBS in your school, it is important to understand the signals and layoutmost ideal for your specific setting. By giving these issues adequate consideration, the program will havea higher likelihood of being embraced by the students and staff.The Stop Signal As discussed, Bully Prevention in Positive Behavior Support describes a 3 step response to problembehavior, including ““Stop””, ““Walk””, and ““Talk. This terminology is adequate for most settings, but forsome (particularly older students), this language may seem childish or ““uncool””. Therefore, the languageused for each of the three steps should be discussed prior to program implementation. Older studentsmay wish to vote on the signals or staff may decide what signals will work best for their school, but twocritical elements must be kept in mind. First, the signals must be short, easy to remember, and easy toproduce. Complicated signals will only reduce the amount they are used. Second, whatever signal yourschool decides on, the ENTIRE school must implement it. Different classrooms or grades must not havetheir own signal. Doing so will eliminate the clarity of the response sequence. The following are examples of statements that may be used in the place of ““stop””: ““enough”” ““time-out”” ““quit-it”” ““overboard”” ““too far”” ““un-cool”” The hand signal that accompanies the ““stop”” command should also be discussed, and mightinclude: BP-PBS: Before We Intervene ii-1
  4. 4. Curriculum Delivery Layout In addition to the specified language, it is important to understand how Bully Prevention in PositiveBehavior Support can be taught most effectively. For this purpose, the program has been broken into 6lessons. Lesson 1 includes most of the curriculum components including the stop/walk,/talk response,and also includes a good deal of class-wide practice. This lesson is the longest of the 6 and takesapproximately 50 minutes to complete. The second lesson, ideally delivered on the following day, onlytakes 30 minutes, and includes how to reply when someone delivers the stop/walk/talk response to you,and also includes some essential group practice. The following 4 sections of the manual cover specific examples of how to use the stop/walk/talkresponse appropriately, and should be delivered for 10-15 minutes one or two times a week. Morespecifically, following 3 sections involve practice around how to respond to gossip, inappropriateremarks, and cyber-bullying. The 4th is a generic practice lesson for use with other specific problembehaviors that may surface at your school. Section 6 is the supervision curriculum. This section clarifies how supervision should beconducted in unstructured settings such as the cafeteria, gym, hallways, and playground. Delivered ineach applicable setting, this practice involves reviewing how to respond to reports of problem behavior,how to reinforce appropriate use of stop/walk/talk, and how to check in with chronic targets andinstigators. This is a critical part of BP-PBS as supervisors play an enormous role in the generalization oflessons learned inside the classroom. If we fail to respond to reports of problem behavior outside theclassroom appropriately, the likelihood that children will use the program components will dropsignificantly. Section 7, the faculty follow-up, is an opportunity to check how the program is working. Basedon the responses to a small survey, changes can be made in how the program is implemented. Finally, section 8 includes all the citations used throughout the manual as well as resourcesapplicable to the effective and efficient use of the program.ii-2 Introduction: BP-PBS

The survey is simple to complete, ________________ ________________including only 6 questions to be answered on a 1 to 5 scale.

  38. 38. Where BP-PBS Came FromIntroduction Bullying has reached epidemic proportions in American schools. The National School SafetyCenter (NSSC) called bullying the most enduring and underrated problem in U.S. schools (Beale, 2001),and in a national survey, nearly 30 percent of students surveyed reported being involved in bullying aseither a perpetrator or a victim (Nansel, et al., 2001; Swearer & Espelage, 2004). In an effort to respondto this epidemic, Bully Prevention in Positive Behavior Support was designed, blending school-widepositive behavior support, explicit instruction regarding a 3-step response to problem behavior, and areconceptualization of the bullying construct. Bully-Prevention in Positive Behavior Support (BP-PBS)gives students the tools necessary to remove the social rewards maintaining inappropriate behavior,thereby decreasing the likelihood of problem behavior occurring in the future. BP-PBS not onlydecreases incidents of bullying behavior, but also increases appropriate recipient responses to bullyingbehavior and appropriate bystander responses to bullying behavior. In addition, because the program isdesigned to fit within a larger system of positive behavior support, it is far less resource intensive and farmore likely to be implemented over consecutive years. In an effort to evaluate the initial effectiveness of the BP-PBS curriculum, a pilot study was run in anearby elementary school during the winter of 2007. Ten minute observations were conducted on threestudents as selected by the principal, along with a composite peer during lunch recess to evaluate theeffectiveness of the program. Results indicated a significant reduction in problem behavior after theintervention was delivered (55-69% reduction). In addition, other students on the playground weresignificantly more likely to respond appropriately when they were bullied (see Appendix A, B, and C). BP-PBS: Introduction 8-1
  39. 39. The Impact of Bullying Victims and perpetrators of bullying are at risk for behavioral, emotional, and academic problems(Espelage & Swearer, 2003; Schwartz & Gorman, 2003) and are also at increased risk for depression,anxiety, loneliness, low self-esteem, and suicide (Baldry & Farrington, 1998). Over time, these childrenare more likely to skip and/or drop out of school (Berthold & Hoover, 2000; Neary & Joseph, 1994) andsuffer from underachievement and sub-potential performance in employment settings (Carney & Merrell,2001; NSSC, 1995). Bullies in particular are more likely to acquire increased numbers of criminalconvictions and traffic violations than their less-aggressive peers (Roberts, 2000), and children who areboth victims and perpetrators of bullying (bully/victims) are found to have significantly lower levels ofsocial acceptance and self-esteem than children who are bullies or victims only (Andreou, 2000). Thenow infamous Columbine killings were perpetrated by young people thought to fit within thisbully/victim category who believed they had a grievance against those who had treated them badly orhad seemed to collude in their social ostracism (Rigby, 2006). Current Interventions Because of the detrimental effects, great attention in education has been directed toward"bullies" and the negative impact of their behavior on schools (Smokowski & Kopasz, 2005). Majorconcern about improving school safety has followed, with an onslaught of bully-prevention campaignsacross the country. According to a national survey of state departments of education, 39 states informeducators, parents, and students about how to respond to bullying (Furlong & Morrison, 2000), and 23states have passed anti-bullying laws including clear prohibitions on bullying and legislative findings ofits deleterious effects on school environments (http://bullypolice.org). With this enhanced interest instopping bullying has come a rapidly increasing number of intervention programs designed to reducebullying in schools. However, despite the overdue attention, there are indications that the movement is not makinggood progress. The U.S. Surgeon Generals report on youth violence (U.S. Department of Health andHuman Services, 2001) identified 29 best practices in youth violence prevention; the only bullyingprogram to make the list was the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (Olweus, Limber, & Mihalic,1999), and it was listed as a "promising" rather than a "model" program.
