Bullying Prevention Class Meetings
Class meetings should be happening in every classroom at least once a week:
Expectation: All teachers in every classroom are hosting at least one bullying prevention class meeting a week. “Weekly” class meetings are a key component to decreasing bullying. Implementing the program with fidelity will yield the research proven results.
Designated day and time:
Expectation: It should be a priority to the campus and an expectation that a specific time and day is designated for bullying prevention class meetings. Setting a time and day for bullying prevention class meetings is a form of accountability for the campus. Class meeting time should be about 20-30 minutes for upper elementary, middle and high school students.
Class meeting discussion topics:
Expectation: Although the initial focus is on bullying, these meetings can be used for other topics as well. Students may become bored if bullying is the only topic discussed.
