Bullying Prevention

There's no room for bullying in Wake County. We're building a safe, supportive school climate for all of our students.

Bullying can include behaviors such as:

  • physical violence and attacks
  • extortion and theft
  • taunts, name-calling and put-downs
  • peer group exclusion
  • threats and intimidation
  • cyberbullying

Any student that believes he or she has been harassed or bullied should report it immediately to a teacher, counselor or school administrator. Any school employee made aware of bullying shall report it to the principal.

How you can help if your child is being bullied

  • Be supportive.
  • Listen, get the facts, and assess your child's feelings.
  • Let your child know that it's not his or her fault.
  • Praise your child for discussing the bullying.
  • Find out what your child feels he or she needs to feel safe.
  • Communicate with your school.
  • Let them know the who, what, when and where.
  • Let school officials contact the other child's parents.
  • Talk regularly with your child and school to assess whether the bullying has stopped.
  • Encourage and support your child in making friends.
