The nationally-recognized Olweus Bullying Prevention Program was adopted by Northeastern Middle School in 2001 and a committee was established to run the program. The Anti-Bullying Committee, which was retrained in 2005, consists of teachers, guidance counselors, administrators, and parents. Bullying cards and boxes are located in classrooms and offices for students to complete when they feel bullied or witness bullying. The committee meets every week to plan antibullying events such as Mix-It-Up-at- Lunch Day and school assemblies, coordinate surveys, review bullying cards, and meet with bullies and victims. The committee also contacts parents of bullies and their victims and issues consequences when appropriate.
Program Mission: to make our school a safe and positive place to learn.
