NBA...No Bullying Allowed
All schools deal with the issue of bullying. Mountain Trail is taking proactive steps to stop and prevent bullying by adopting the Olweus Bullying Prevention Curriculum (aka NBA - No Bullying Allowed). This research-based school wide "systems-change" curriculum has been used successfully in schools all over the country and around the world with positive results.
This program is not a curriculum that students participate in for only a few weeks. Rather, it is a coordinated effort by all the adults in the school to supervise and intervene when any bullying happens. As part of the curriculum, students participate in bi-weekly class meetings to learn about the effects of bullying, what they can do about it, and how they can work with adults at school to put a stop to it.
This type of curriculum is about changing the whole school climate to make it a safer, more positive place to learn. One change that many schools have noticed after using this curriculum for a year or two is that students actually like school better. Implementing the Olweus Bullying Prevention Curriculum is a long-term commitment to making Mountain Trail a safer, more positive place to be.
