Stockton Unified School District and the Student Support Services Department are proud to have created a multi-faceted approach to Bullying Prevention.
School Counselors deliver social-emotional lessons through the Second Step Curriculum to students on how to recognize and define bullying, understanding how bullying can affect them and their peers, empathize with individuals who are bullied, and understand what they can do when they or someone they know are being bullied.
The PLUS program is a peer resource, trauma-informed, program that trains students to be restorative advocates in preventing and reducing bullying & school violence, alcohol/drug use, suicides, and other risk factors, by promoting opportunities for: prosocial bonding & inclusion. building a strong sense of belonging, and through district-wide prevention and awareness activities (Unity Day, SUSD is Bully-Free month, Suicide Prevention, Say Something Week, No One Eats Alone Day, etc.).
Below you will find resources on how to deal with bullying and cyberbullying, as well as our Bullying Prevention guide for SUSD is Bully-Free Month in November.
