Anti-Bullying and Violence Prevention

The physical, social, and emotional well-being of students can be impacted by unwanted aggressive behavior or bullying.  
In accordance with A.C.A. § 6-18-514, all public school students have the right to receive their education in an environment that is reasonably free from substantial intimidation, harassment, or harm or threat of harm by another student, in person or by electronic means.
In addition, the Rules Governing Public School Student Services require districts to provide group conflict resolution services including programs to prevent bullying in schools.
To support Arkansas schools and school districts, the ADE is providing links to a selection of resources available that are free to Arkansas educators.
