The Lawrence Public Schools’ Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plan was developed in consultation with teachers, administrators, school nurses, counselors, parents, police department representatives, students, and community representatives. The district is committed to providing all students with a safe learning environment that is free from bullying and cyberbullying. This commitment is an integral part of our comprehensive efforts to promote learning, and to prevent and eliminate all forms of bullying and other harmful and disruptive behavior that can impede the learning process. This Plan is the district’s blueprint for enhancing capacity to prevent and respond to issues of bullying within the context of other healthy school
initiatives. As part of the process, the planning group assessed the adequacy of current programs, reviewed current policies and procedures, reviewed data on bullying and behavioral incidents and assessed available resources including curricula, training programs, and behavioral health services. These activities assisted the planning group in identifying resources, gaps in services, and areas of need in order to assist the district in revising and developing procedures and setting priorities to address bullying prevention and intervention. Prevention strategies include professional development, age-appropriate curricula and in-school support services.
