  12. Bystanders • The majority of students fall into the category of Bystanders. This group includes everyone (other than the bully and the victim/target) who is present during the bullying incident. • Afraid to associate with the victim/target for fear of either lowering their own status and becoming victims themselves • Afraid toreport bullying incidents because they do not want to be called a "snitch," a "tattler," or "informer" • Experience feelings of guilt and helplessness for not standing up to the bully on behalf of their classmate • Be drawn into bullying behavior by group pressure • Afraid to take action

  13. Types of Bystanders • Sidekicks - Closest to the bully • Reinforcers - Next in line and always support the bully • Outsiders - Try not to draw attention to themselves but appear to support the bullying • Defenders - Furthest from the bully and may have the courage to step out of the bystander role and become active in their support of the victim Bystander PSA

  14. Quotes: • "I'm 14 in March and I'm being bullied constantly. In nearly every class, I sit by myself because nobody wants to sit next to me. One of my few friends hangs around with other people because I think he is frightened if he is with me he will get bullied. I'm sick to death of it.” - Unknown • I don't like it that he is bullied, but I can't do anything about it or they will turn on me, too.“ – Unknown

  15. Allen ISD Class Code of Conduct • All Allen ISD students treat others with kindness and respect at all times. Bullying behaviors will not be tolerated. Poster - AISD Class Code of Conduct

  16. Reporting Bullying The person(s) responsible for reporting bullying are: • The victim of the bullying • Anyone who witnessed the bullying - Bystanders • Anyone with credible information that an act of bullying is taking place AISD Bullying Incident Report

  17. Student Responsibilities • Students who observe the act of bullying or who believe that bullying is taking place are obligated to report the bullying to school authorities. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action. The victim of the bullying shall however, not be subject to discipline for failure to report the bullying. • So…if you are a bystander and choose to do nothing, you may receive a consequence from your principal.
