Content/Features: The Student Bullying and Violence Prevention Program includes a student bullying reporting system, a student safety reporting system, short online videos for students, and online training courses for staff.

The student videos include "Bullying--Beat Bullying" and "Bullying Tell Someone." These videos, featuring middle and high school students, address responses and coping mechanisms for dealing with bullying. The materials emphasize that students should tell someone about these situations and that bullying can be beaten. The audio component of the online materials will benefit ESL (English as a second language) students.

The videos can be used to provide an introduction to the topic of bullying to begin a discussion--either before or when issues arise in the classroom or school. After viewing the videos, students can create their own "products" to develop the topic and personalize it. These products could include computer presentations, panel discussions, posters, or brochures that could be shared with their class, school, or community.

The online staff courses include Bullying Prevention, Violence Prevention, Positive Youth Development, and Teen Dating Violence. The teacher training is provided in modules that administer a test at the end of each section.

The Bullying Prevention segment covers the definition of bullying, types of bullying, victims of bullying, the effects of bullying, cyberbullying, and how to develop a bullying intervention program.

The Violence Prevention material focuses on an overview of youth violence, how violence develops in youth, factors that influence violence, statistics related to school violence, and characteristics of safe schools. The program provides schoolwide and classroom interventions. Suggestions for managing conflict and tactics to de-escalate situations are provided.

The Teen Dating Violence section offers information on statistics, definitions, and types of dating violence; violence dynamics and effects; and how to recognize teen dating problems. The material provides ideas for school interventions and information on laws and liability.
