why conflict management curriculum

Why Conflict Management Curriculum?

SB 471 and HB 1942 – Starting in 2012-2013 – Expands the requirements on school districts to address bullying and harassment, such as parental notification, programs for students and staff, providing counseling to bullies and victims and protecting those who report bullying.  Charter schools also are required to adopt a policy on sexual abuse starting this 2012-2013.

HB 1942 – Expands the definition of bullying and allows school districts to transfer the bully to another classroom or campus within the district.

HB 1386 – Requires the development of intervention and prevention programs to train school staff to recognize potential suicide victims, to include those students targeted by bullies.

what is bullying

What is Bullying?

Bullying is a form of youth violence and can result in physical injury, social and emotional distress, and even death.

Victimized youth are at increased risk for mental health problems such as depression and anxiety, psychosomatic complaints such as headaches, and poor school adjustment.

Youth who bully others are at increased risk for substance use, academic problems, and violence later in adolescence and adulthood. The ultimate goal is to stop bullying before it starts.

(Understanding Bullying, CDC, 2013)

Why is Take a Stand Important?

Nearly 1 in 3 students (27.8%) report being bullied during the school year (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2013)

School-based bullying prevention programs decrease bullying by up to 25% (McCallion and Feder, 2013).

According to children ages 12-18 who reported being bullied in the 2007-2008 school year, 79 percent of bullying occurred within the school, 23 percent on school grounds, eight percent on the school bus, and four percent somewhere else. (ChildTrendsDataBank, 2014)
