Anti-Bullying Program

BULLYING!  The word is heard in schools across the state and across the country!  And, it's not just a word, it's real!  It goes on every day, in every school, in every state, and likely in every country.  So, what exactly IS bullying?  

Bullying defined is:  OVERT, UNWANTED, REPEATED ACTS OR GESTURES, including verbal or written communications or images transmitted in any manner ("cyber bullying").  It's when physical acts are committed; aggression; harassment; ridicule; humiliation; intimidation, and/or harm towards a targeted individual.
