Jim will entertain questions around the topic of school bus safety and share proven strategies for schools and parents on making the bus stop and bus ride a safer one for all students. Please join us on Wednesday, January 11th at 9PM EST at #ptchat.
I firmly believe kids need their parents and teachers to be on the same page when it comes to any bully prevention efforts. The bus is one part of the school day that often gets overlooked in terms of proactive efforts to prevent bullying. At our elementary school, our staff has implemented the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program as well as the Peaceful Bus Program (Article 1 / Article 2) at our school. During the #ptchat, I will share it’s impact as well as the implementation steps our school team took from the day our guidance counselor brought the Peaceful Bus Program to our attention. Below is a brief video overview of the program. Looking forward to chatting with you on January 11th! For more information please email me.
