As October is National Bullying Prevention Month 2017, TargetSolutions is shining the spotlight on our important School Bullying training course to aid school districts with taking a stand against bullying.
National Bullying Prevention Month 2017 addresses the growing crisis of bullying for youth across the United States. Each year, approximately 47 percent of students are estimated to be involved in some form of bullying, whether it’s being the bully or the target. What’s more is that this figure has nearly doubled from the mere 28 percent that was reported in 2001. The ultimate goal of the movement is to permanently “Stomp Out” bullying by improving awareness of the issue and its impact on children.
TargetSolutions helps school districts be proactive against bullying with the important School Bullying training course from the online course catalog for school districts. This interactive course educates school staff on the various forms of bullying and how to maintain a safe learning environment.
The structure of the course guides the learner from understanding bullying to becoming an advocate for school bullying prevention. The learning modules are organized accordingly:
- What Is School Bullying?
- Types of Bullying
- Cyber Bullying
- Bullying Myths and Facts
- Identifying Bullies and Victims
- Consequences of Bullying
- Bullying in the Classroom
- Confronting a Bully
- School Intervention Programs
- Promoting an Anti-Bullying School
School Bullying features audio narration and interactive exercises to accommodate different learning styles and highlights key points with related text and images. As learners complete lessons, they are tested with brief quizzes and once they complete the course, learners show their comprehension with an end-of-course exam.
“TargetSolutions’ School Bullying course helps staff identify different types of bullying, as well as confrontation methods. By administering this course to your staff, you can help promote an anti-bullying environment.”

Students who are bullied in school, particularly from targeted groups such as the LGBTQ community, are at risk for poor classroom performance, long-term damage to self-esteem and even suicide. National Bullying Prevention Month 2017 is about promoting growth, creating a safe school atmosphere, and taking a stand against bullying.
