|Creating a Safe and Respectful Environment on Our Nation's School Buses||Toolkit & Training||Safe and Supportive Schools Technical Assistance Center||2011|
The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Healthy Students and the Safe and Supportive Schools Technical Assistance Center partnered with the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) to coordinate a special event on Creating a Safe and Respectful Environment on Our Nation’s School Buses. These modules are intentionally designed to be offered as a series. The content of each module complements and completes the content contained in the other module. While Module 1 (See Something. Do Something. Intervening in Bullying Behavior) addresses how to identify and effectively intervene when bullying occurs (including tips on de-escalation), Module 2 (Creating a Supportive Bus Climate: Preventing Bullying) considers effective strategies to build a bus climate where bullying is less likely to occur. It’s our belief that bus drivers and students alike are best served when BOTH modules are covered with drivers within a short timeframe of one another.

|Bullying Intervention: What Works||Webinar||Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention||2011|
hool personnel and other professionals who work with children and youth often experience challenges in identifying bullying and effectively intervening when it occurs. In Bullying Intervention: What Works, three bullying prevention and intervention experts helped participants understand what bullying is (and isn't) and discussed challenges in defining and identifying bullying behaviors. They highlighted key findings from research regarding the prevalence of bullying and the many roles that children and youth can play in instances of bullying. Participants learned which actions children and youth feel are helpful in addressing bullying, and they learned best practice strategies to communicate and intervene with youth who bully, youth who are bullied, and those who witness bullying.
