Guam - Dozens of Department of Education administrators, supervisors and bus drivers are participating in the bully prevention program orientation. The two-day training, made possible through federal funding, intends to provide best practices to ensure students' safety both on- and off-campus.

Discussions focused on the framework for positive school climates and creating safe and bully free schools from the inside-out.  The event was hosted by the Judiciary and DOE. Program managers Joleen Respicio said, "It gives them an idea of what to expect. Again, bullying prevention is something that needs to be done on a community level and so we need to involve all stakeholders in all parts of our island."

And fellow program manager Chris Anderson said, "Part of the overall objective today was to talk about that framework about how DOE is going to work to address issues of behavior, bullying being one type of behavior, but behavior in general with positive behavioral intervention supports as our framework and foundation and working with the courts to introduce overseas bullying prevention program in the schools."

The conference continues on Wednesday at The Hyatt in Tumon.
