ESA 5 provides anti-bullying training

ESA 5 is pleased to announce its newest training opportunity entitled, "Bullying, Cyber-bullying and 21st Century Citizenship." The training moves beyond statistics and engages students with stories and songs.

The program for PK-6th grade focuses on the story of rescue dog Starbuck. His experiences become the backdrop for online safety, bullying, cyber-bullying and appropriate cell phone behavior.

The program for grades 7-12 focuses on empowering students to make good decisions as they navigate in the digital world. This informative presentation stresses positive behavior while increasing awareness of the responsibilities of having a presence on the Internet or cell phone. ESA 5 tailors their presentation formats to the unique needs of each district. Click here or contact Erin Dale for more information.
