School bus drivers get help in handling bullying

busAlmost 10 percent of bullying related to schools occurs on school buses, yet many drivers don’t feel equipped to handle bullying incidents on their buses, according to a press release from the U.S. Department of Education.

To help the situation of bullying on busses, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Healthy Students has developed training materials to provide guidance on how bus drivers can effectively respond to and prevent bullying.

Published in June 2011, the materials help bus drivers create a safe and respectful environment on our nation’s school buses. The state-of-the-art information, which includes a palm card for drivers as an easy reference tool for actions to take, provides ways to intervene in bullying behavior, de-escalate threatening behavior, and build a supportive bus climate to prevent bullying.
