Responding to Bullying: New and Old Requirements for Legally Compliant Responses

Is your team overwhelmed by the use of the “b-word?” From kindergarten to high school, whether on the playground or on-line, complaints of bullying seem to be at an all-time high. And as we start this new school year, educators are required to comply with Illinois’ newly revised bullying statute. This training will help staff understand the triggers for notification, investigation, and remediation of bullying. Your team members will leave with practical guidelines for complying with the law, responding to complaints, and maintaining documentation that will prevent future liability. This training is intended for those responsible for supervising responses to bullying and those in buildings working with students and families.
