Recommended Practices: A Review of Schoolwide Preventative Programs and Strategies on Cyberbullying
Couvillon, Michael A.; Ilieva, Vessela
Preventing School Failure, v55 n2 p96-101 2011
Cyberbullying is a growing concern among school-age students. The combination of increased access, ease, and use of Web-based communication are part of what attributes to the problem. Cyberbullying affects not only students, but also parents and administrators. Because schools have the ability to reach all groups involved, it may be practical for schools to implement preventive and support ongoing efforts to address the concern. Research shows that prevention programs focused at the school level will have the strongest effect. By implementing a consistent schoolwide approach to cyberbullying, it is hopeful that the benefits will carry through a student's academic career and beyond. This article reviews recent research and Web-based resources on existing programs and makes recommendations for schools to develop their own cyberbullying prevention program.
