Anti-Bullying and Harassment Resource Library
Model policies, practices and, advocacy tools

NCYL is collecting model policies and practices that schools and school districts can adopt and implement to ensure students are safe in school and their dignity respected. This includes model school board resolutions; best practices with respect to investigating reported incidents of bullying, harassment and intimidation; and training materials for teachers and students on cultural competency, growth mindset and implicit bias. There are also public advocacy tools for students and families such as model complaints they can file with their state department of education or the federal Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights.
