Guam - Supreme Court of Guam Chief Justice F. Philip Carbullido mentioned briefly in his State of the Judiciary Address last week a partnership with the Department of Education on bullying prevention. According to Judiciary, safe and drug free schools project manager Joleen Respicio it will be a team effort between all three branches of government.

She said, "Our frontline people our schools need that type of partnership need that type of community involvement and like any team the concerted effort again is that it's really based on basic principles of teamwork. When we help each other out when we do our fair share when we work together you know albeit individually we all have great ideas but collectively we're much stronger."

Local stakeholders will be implementing the nation's only research and evidence based bullying prevention program, Olweus in the elementary schools next school year, while the safe school ambassadors program will empower middle and high school students to help prevent, intervene and stop bulling on Guam.
