5 STEPS OF THE STUDY
1. School Culture Survey
If your school is accepted for our free study, we will create three custom survey links for your school. Your students will take the First Survey in early September, 2020, before starting the No Bullying Schools Program. This establishes a baseline for your campus. It has 23 questions and takes about 15 minutes to complete. Click Here to Preview The Survey!
2. Five Video Lessons
Over the next five weeks, your teachers will take the students through our Five Core Video Lessons (ideally in a weekly Advisory Period). You will need about 45 – 50 minutes per lesson: 20 minutes for the video plus 20 – 30 minutes for the PDF Discussion Guide. The videos feature Tom Thelen and cohost Jordan Carson.
3. "Report Bullying" (Free App)
Students download our free “Report Bullying” Smartphone App (for iPhone or Android), or they can use the Report Form on our website to report any type of behavior incident: Bullying, Cyberbullying, Inappropriate Behavior, At-Risk Behavior, Mental Health Concerns, and more. Each report sends a confidential email alert to your School Leaders.
4. Track and Manage Reports
School Leader get access to our Report Bullying Software where they can monitor and follow up on any new reports that come in from the students, parents, or educators. The software makes a distinction between REPORTS and CONFIRMED INCIDENTS, because not every report will be considered bullying (peer conflicts, for example).
5. School Culture Survey
To finish the Research Study, your students take the School Culture Survey a second time in late October, and they take it a third time in late November of 2020. The first 23 questions remain the same as the First Survey, but now we add 9 new questions asking for feedback about how the program impacted the students. Click Here to Preview The Survey!
