Agenda Item #11
National Bullying Prevention Month
The Office of Students at Risk is pleased to share Governor Rick Scott's proclamation for October 2015 as National Bullying Prevention Month. Bullying in schools is of increasing focus for Florida schools, districts, and for the Florida Department of Education. Schools and organizations across the county are encouraged to come together in an effort to educate on the impact of bullying and raise awareness for bullying prevention.
PLEASE NOTE: This proclamation was not delivered to districts until Wednesday, September 30, 2015 and therefore could not be submitted for approval from the Board prior to the October 13, 2015 meeting.
