Bullying Prevention in Louisiana Schools
New regulations for the implementation of Act 861 on Bullying Prevention were approved by the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) as a Notice of Intent at the October Board meeting. BESE also approved a Bullying Report Form and a Bullying Investigation Form that districts are to now use to document their efforts. The new forms are attached and will be available for download on the Department of Education’s website.
In addition, the Louisiana Department of Education developed A Bullying Prevention Toolkit containing other resources that districts may use to address bullying.
