Bullying Prevention & Social Skills Curriculum

Bullying Prevention

The Bellevue School District’s Bullying Prevention and Social Skills curriculum is being taught at all grade levels, in every school.  Younger students learn about empathy, making friends, problem solving and responding to bullying.  Integrated lessons for older students include the impact of gossiping, taunting and bullying, as well as the dangers of cyber-bullying.  All students are challenged to think about a “Virtue of the Month,” such as respect, compassion and integrity.

Bullying, It's Not OK: When your Child is the Target, the Bully, or a Bystander

Bullying is when one child or a group of children repeatedly picks on another child - often one who is seen as weaker and more vulnerable.  Bullying can be about any real or imagined difference a child might have.
