Bullying Prevention: Introduction

Purpose of the Guide

The Bullying Prevention LibGuide provides information on high quality bullying prevention and intervention materials customized to meet the needs of individual Jefferson County Public School students.  Resources were selected on their potential to help empower the target, mobilize the bystander and rehabilitate the bully. 


This dynamic online portal is organized for easy searching by grade level groupings: K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12.  In addition to a description of each resource, a link to your school library’s catalog makes it easy to check availability.  You may begin your search using the grade level grouping tab or a keyword in the search box.
