Bullying Prevention
One example of the Bozeman School District’s commitment to building positive relationships is the adoption and implementation of the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. The Olweus Program (pronounced Ol-VEY-us) is a comprehensive, school-wide program designed and evaluated for use in elementary, middle, junior high or high schools. The program’s goals are to reduce and prevent bullying problems among school children and to improve peer relations at school. The program has been found to reduce bullying among children, improve the social climate of classrooms, and reduce related antisocial behaviors, such as vandalism and truancy. The Olweus Program has been implemented in more than a dozen countries around the world, and in thousands of schools in the United States. It is a top priority and part of the District’s Long Range Strategic Plan. All schools have an action plan specifically addressing the Olweus Program.
