Resources for Bullying, Cyberbullying & SextingState of Nevada Department of EducationTips for students:
If bullied, tell your parents, teachers and/or school administrators.
Telling is NOT tattling if you feel hurt or scared. It is reporting
Do not retaliate or get even
Respond evenly without losing your temper and in a firm voice or say nothing and get away.
Stand by each other. If you watch, laugh, or ignore, you are part of the problem. It is your school!!!!
Be aware of your surroundings no matter where you are
Avoid unsupervised areas
Do not bring expensive items to school
Tips for schools:

counselors, teachers, parents, students and administration
Create a plan to handle student concerns and reporting
Teach tips for dealing with bullying and resolving conflicts to ALL your students
Establish classroom and school rules against bullying
Establish positive and negative consequences that you enforce for everyone
Get bystanders motivated to help by reporting safely and confidentially, befriending or
understanding victims, listening to each other and understanding how to deal with conflicts and emotions appropriately
Friends showing bullying behaviors can usually be stopped by their own friends too
Facilitate the development of trusting relationships between
each student and at least one adult
RELATIONSHIPS ARE KEY!!
