'No Bully' Bully prevention and intervention
Students should never feel unsafe at school, and in Pueblo School District 60 schools, the “No Bully System” alongside the District’s Bullying Prevention Policy has helped create peace in its schools while engaging families and the community in bullying prevention.
The approaches District 60 has taken to reduce bullying have been recognized across the State of Colorado and throughout the world, as Roncalli STEM Academy's bully-prevention program was featured on France-TV, France's national news station. District 60 has also been featured as the top test case for success using the “No Bully System.”
About the No Bully System
Bullying and harassment stand in the way of our social vision. Therefore, District 60 has adopted the No Bully System for preventing and responding to harassment and bullying on District 60 property, in District 60 vehicles, at school-sanctioned activities and events, or through social media. This school-wide system applies to all students, teachers, staff, specialists, and anyone who works at schools, whether employed by the school or district, working as contractors, or volunteers pursuant to Colorado’s Board of Education anti-bullying policy.
Our schools take a problem-solving approach to bullying. Schools have staff members trained as Bullying Prevention Coaches who will meet with students that are the target of bullying and help end bullying situations.
