Awareness and Prevention of School Based Bullying

August 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This workshop will cover the extent of bullying and its effects on young people. We will look at our current statewide data and see what students are saying about the topic. Lastly, along with learning about Wisconsin’s state statute addressing bullying and school district responsibilities regarding this law, we will cover a myriad of resources available to support your district’s efforts in combatting this issue.
