Bullying Prevention - Expect Respect
Bullying prevention and intervention is taken seriously at Frankfort Middle School. Every year, all staff and students are trained to identify incidents of possible bullying and take action when they occur. Also included in the training is the appropriate response students are to use when accused of being an instigator. A reporting and follow-up procedure documents incidents and resulting actions taken with all involved parties – target, instigator, and witnesses. This program, from PBIS.org (Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports) is an effective, research-based program recommended by the Indiana Department of Education.
