What to do if bullying hasn’t stopped …
If you feel that school officials are minimizing what happened or in denial that bullying occurs at your child’s school, seek out their superiors. Principals typically report to an assistant superintendent and school districts have an individual who supervises counselors.
If your child’s school does not have a comprehensive anti-bullying program in place, recommend that school and/or district officials act to provide trainings and institute a school-wide program.
You can also appeal to elected school board members and the school district superintendent if your child attends a district school. In charter and private schools, there is not a publicly elected school board, but there may be appointed board members who you can contact. If your child attends a charter school, you can find out which agency reviews the school’s charter for renewal and directly report the problem to that agency as well.
