School Bullying Policy

Olweus Anti-Bullying Policy

Many headlines have shown, bullying can happen in any school in any community. Holy Trinity Catholic School is taking a proactive approach to stop and prevent bullying by incorporating the Olweus (pronounced Ol-VAY-us) Bullying Prevention Program. This nationwide program is a school-wide, “system change” program that is effective at reducing rates of bullying in a school if implemented with fidelity. It was designed to improve peer relations and make schools a more positive place for students to learn and develop.

The Olweus Bullying Prevention Program is not a curriculum but an ongoing program that deals with bullying school wide, in the classroom, individually, and at community levels.

Specific bullying type behaviors are addressed on the school Demerit Form.
