The Highmark Foundation has provided funding over the past six years to help schools improve their bullying prevention and intervention efforts. One of the important components of bullying prevention and intervention is parental involvement and education. Parents whose children are targeted by bullying need information and resources to support their child through this difficult time.
In an effort to provide parents with the assistance they need, the Center For Safe Schools with funding provided by the Highmark Foundation developed the Pennsylvania Bullying Prevention Toolkit and Companion Guides. These free and downloadable tools were recently sent to Superintendents and Principals throughout the Commonwealth. Tools such as these are helpful to inform parents of the definition of bullying and how to support their children. the Pennsylvania Bullying Prevention Toolkit and Companion Guides can be found at: www.safeschools.info/bulling-prevention
