Guam - Hoping to decrease the cases of bullying in the schools, the University of Guam Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research & Science is training Department of Education officials in the middle schools on how to handle these types of situations. CEDDERS training associate Nieves Flores says they are providing technical assistance to ensure that schools are safe and have a positive environment.

"The outcome, I think, is to ensure the continues work that they have been doing for the past four years in ensuring a safe, positive environment and people have the perception that its going to happen overnight, it takes years if you read the literature on it," she stated.

Participants also noted that all middle schools had a representative at the continuous training event, except for FBLG Middle School in Yigo.
