Developing anti-violence programs for schools is a big decision. There are many different ways to approach the strategy of choosing a program.
Any school can decide to begin a program to improve their school’s learning climate by reducing bullying. Programs can be customized to fit any level of school from grades K-12. Key school personnel need to be trained and supervised for the first year to fit a program to their school. Single school program development is the most intensive and focused programming for one school.
