PARENT INFORMATION AND RESOURCES FOR ANTI-BULLYING
The Highmark Foundation has provided funding over the past ten years to help schools improve their bullying prevention and intervention efforts. One of the important components of bullying prevention and intervention is parental involvement and education. Parents whose children are targeted by bullying need information and resources to support their child through this difficult time.
In an effort to provide parents with the assistance they need, the Center for Safe Schools with funding provided by the Highmark Foundation developed the PA Bullying Prevention Toolkit and companion guides. These free, downloadable tools are helpful to inform parents of the definition of bullying and how to support their children. The PA Bullying Prevention Toolkit and companion guides can be accessed at: http://www.safeschools.info/bullying-prevention.
In the 2016-17 school year, the Highmark Foundation, in partnership with the Center for Safe Schools, is pleased to continue to provide Pennsylvania schools with articles that can be added to your school’s monthly newsletters to parents. Below is the third in a series of articles you will receive to supplement your communications with parents.
We hope that you find this information useful for the school and your parents.
