School Climate Center
Bullying Prevention and Help
Everyone has a role to play in ensuring that all students learn in safe and welcoming school environments. Resources on this page are designed to assist parents, students, family members, teachers, school administrators, school support staff members and community members in creating safe and supportive environments. The resources include advice on how to help someone who has experienced bullying as well as information on how to prevent bullying and how to intervene when it happens.
Improving Academic Outcomes through Safe and Supportive Schools
Safe, supportive and welcoming schools play a pivotal role in ensuring students are engaged in learning and nothing hinders their ability to achieve their best in the classroom. Too often, bullying interferes with teaching and learning in schools.
The School Climate Center is dedicated to helping schools and community members develop safe and supportive learning environments, thereby increasing academic success for all students.
This website is a resource for all members of the school community: board members, superintendents, principals, teachers, school support staff, students, families, individuals and community organizations. It provides guidance to support the school community as we work together to provide respectful, safe and supportive schools.
