Each year 30% of students are the target of bullying and cyberbullying.
Civility Partners is partners with No Bully, an evidence-based program that leverages student empathy – instead of punishment – to solve the problem of bullying in schools. Since 2009, the non-punitive No Bully System has created bully-free schools for over 120,000 students, and we are proud to say we are certified to offer the No Bully System® to your school.
The No Bully System® is a step-by-step process and set of interventions to prevent and stop bullying. It guides school leaders and staff through a series of interventions for responding to bullying and harassment. When severe or persistent bullying occurs, teachers facilitate Solution Teams®, where the target’s peer group and the bully come together to stop the bullying.
When we partner with your school, you will receive the following:
- Three one-on-one coaching sessions with the school’s leadership team (e.g. principal, counselors, and anyone who can help lead culture change)
- Foundational training for all campus adults, that gives teachers and staff a common language around bullying and harassment, and how to step in and intervene
- Parent and guardian workshop that provides insight into what bullying and cyberbullying is like in our current generations, and how to help prevent their child from becoming a target or bully
- Solution coach® training for a select group of teachers or counselors, who will learn to end bullying situations, remedy the hostile environment and facilitate change in students who are stuck in the role of bully or target
- A follow-up solution coach® training to enhance their skills, and further, address the marginalization of diverse students.
Independent studies of the No Bully System® show that schools trained in the No Bully method remedy bullying in over 90%. Learn more about the impact the No Bully System can have on your school.
Workplace Bullying violates the Provision of a Safe and Respectful Learning Environment, Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 388.121-139.
NRS 388.135 makes it clear that disrespectful or aggressive behaviors are not only prohibited for students, but for adults too.
We can help you improve your school environment in order to “facilitate positive human relations” (as required by law) among students and adults by offering services to your faculty and staff. Although there are many programs available that address student bullying, few address workplace bullying and aggressive communication among adults.
