for educators
For Educators:

What You Should Know:

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among students that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both students who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.

Bullying can occur during or after school hours. While most reported bullying happens in the school building, a significant percentage also happens in places like on the playground or the bus. It can also happen traveling to or from school, in the youth’s neighborhood, or on the Internet.There are common types of bullying that can occur:

  • Verbal bullying: Saying or writing mean things
  • Social bullying: Commonly referred to as relational bullying, involves hurting someone’s reputation or relationships.
  • Physical bullying: hurting a person’s body or possessions

It is important to talk with children who show signs of being bullied or bullying others. Bullying can point to other issues or problems, such as depression or substance abuse. Talking to the student can help identify the root of the problem

What Should You Do?

There are simple steps teachers can take to stop bullying on the spot and keep students safe:

  • Intervene immediately. It is ok to get another teacher to help when multiple students involved.
  • Separate the students involved.
  • Make sure everyone is safe.
  • Meet any immediate medical or mental health needs.
  • Stay calm. Reassure the students involved, including bystanders.
  • Model respectful behavior when you intervene.

  • Gang Resistance Education And Training (G.R.E.A.T.) is an evidence-based and effective gang and violence prevention program built around school-based, law enforcement officer-instructed classroom curricula. The Program is intended as an immunization against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership for children in the years immediately before the prime ages for introduction into gangs and delinquent behavior.
  • G.R.E.A.T. Introduction
  • G.R.E.A.T. has developed partnerships with nationally recognized organizations, such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Families and Schools Together (FAST), and the National Association of Police Athletic/Activities Leagues, Inc. (PAL). These partnerships encourage positive relationships among the community, parents, schools, and the law enforcement community.
  • The G.R.E.A.T. Program offers a continuum of components for students and their families that focus on providing life skills to students to help them avoid using delinquent behavior and violence to solve problems. These components include a 13-lesson middle school curriculum, a 6-lesson elementary school curriculum, a summer program, and families training.
  • The Regional Training Centers provide training to sworn/certified criminal justice professionals to teach the G.R.E.A.T. curricula to elementary and middle school students and to families throughout North America, including the United States, Canada, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama.
