The Anti-Bullying Summit is a unique, one of a kind program designed to teach participants about their rights and responsibilities relating to the bullying of school age students. This program will address the legal issues pertaining to bullying on the basis of race, disability, gender, sexual orientation, or no reason at all. School districts and their staff will learn what their responsibilities and liabilities are, how to avoid liability, and what steps they can take to protect students and avoid a lawsuit. Parents and students will learn how to deal with school districts who need to take action, how to use the juvenile justice system to protect themselves and their children, and how to use the legal system generally to hold wrongdoers accountable. Advocates and attorneys will learn about the laws, both federal and state, used to address bullying issues. Psychologists and related service providers will learn about their responsibilities, and the role of the expert witness in a bullying case.
Each group will receive a “toolkit” of materials to take home which will include templates of letters, complaints, proposed orders and other documents to enable participants to do whatever is necessary to protect students who are the targets of bullying. These materials have been very effective in stopping bullying before it reaches the point where a student is emotionally or physically harmed.
Sometimes anti-bullying programs in schools are not effective in sensitizing people to do what is right. When they fail, parents, school districts and advocates need to have other means of stopping this very harmful, and sometimes dangerous, behavior.
