The big screen hit “Mean Girls” shares a fictionalized story of social aggression and bullying amongst high school girls. While the move is fiction, there are truths within its storylines.
Bullying happens in most all schools across the country, therefore Cumberland Valley has been taking a proactive approach to stop these harmful behaviors before it begins.
Anti-bullying programs have been in place in all CV schools for numerous years. Through the Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support program (SWPBS), teams have educated students on bullying prevention through classroom meetings and lessons. Reminders of school expectations and SWPBS rules are posted throughout the buildings, and staff have participated in bullying prevention inservice programs.
To continue and build upon these efforts, the district has implemented the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP) in our schools. Much of this is accomplished through the efforts of a certified Olweus Bullying Prevention Trainer, Geraldine Johnson.
