Bullying is not tolerated in Haysville Schools. Our plan to combat bullying includes the procedures and techniques provided in Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports and Capturing Kids Hearts. These techniques and procedures have been implemented across the district. In addition, the elementary schools use an anti-bullying program called Olweus.
All staff members read and studied the book, The Bully, the Bullied and the Bystander. The author, Barbara Coloroso, came to our school district and provided a full day of training on anti-bullying techniques. In addition, she provided an evening session which was advertised and open to the public. Mrs. Coloroso is an internationally recognized expert on anti-bullying.
What is Cyberbullying?
Cyberbullying is when a child or teenager is harassed, humiliated, embarrassed, threatened or tormented using digital technology. This is not limited to the Internet; cyberbullying also encompasses bullying done through such things as text messages using cell phones. It is important to note that cyberbullying can only happen between minors. When an adult is harassing children or teenagers, it is known as cyber harassment or cyber stalking.
