Ellen Shinn Updates Potter Commissioners On Anti-Bullying Program

bullygraphicAn update on an anti-bullying program being implemented in the county’s five school districts by Potter County Human Services was presented to the Board of Commissioners on Thursday by Ellen Shinn, grants director for Human Services.

Potter County qualified for a $234,000 grant to operate the program over a four-year period. Now in its third year, the Olweus Anti-Bullying Program has served more than 800 students, resulting in a reduction in bullying and intimidation and better peer relationships, Shinn reported.

School districts and communities have partnered with Human Services to help coordinators Leon Kaple and Debbie Hamilton expand the program’s effectiveness. It focuses on students in grades four through eight. Students, parents and teachers have all gained greater awareness of the bullying problem and how to deal with it, she pointed out.

I wonder who is telling them that bullying is getting better. Evidently they are not asking the kids that are getting bullied.

I agree!! The bullying program in Coudy is NOT working! We are in desparate need of a new program, especially in the high school! We are also in need of parent involvement.
