Olweus Bullying Program
The Batavia City Schools has adopted Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. This program provides a structured approach to the prevention of bullying. It promotes increased understanding of the issues involved with “bullying” behaviors and provides a coordinated plan for addressing these issues. The program involves training for staff and students, as well as information for parents. Information regarding bullying behaviors is shared between departments in the school. Interventions may occur on an individual level within the school.
The goals of the program are:
To reduce (and ideally eliminate) existing bully/victim problems among school children
To prevent the development of new bully/victim problems
To achieve better peer relations at school
To quickly and effectively address bullying issues when they arise
