It can lead to school violence, a more negative school climate, and potential legal actions from parents. As a school administrator, you have the opportunity to address school bullying on all levels of a student’s experience. By leading your school or district in bullying prevention efforts, you can help create a safer, more positive learning environment. Focus on the social environment of the school. To reduce bullying, it is important to change the climate of the school and the social norms with regard to bullying. It must become “uncool” to bully, “cool” to help out students who are bullied, and normative for staff and students to notice when a child is bullied or left out. This requires the efforts of everyone in the school environment- teachers, administrators, counselors, other non-teaching staff such as bus drivers, nurses, school resource officers, custodians, cafeteria workers, and school librarians parents and students. Assess bullying at your school. Adults are not always very good at estimating the nature and extent of bullying at their school.
