FLORIDA - City leaders across the state are joining together to tackle bullying in school districts, including Tallahassee Mayor John Marks.
The Bully Project is to raise awareness on the issue and work with experts across the country to customize responses to bullying in their school districts.
As part of the initiative, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Orlando, Daytona Beach and Fort Myers will have access to technical support from a team of education specialists at the University of Illinois in partnership with The BULLY Project. The experts will provide participating mayors with advice and research on programmatic approaches to ending bullying, so the solutions developed through the initiative are based strongly in recognized best practices and have a sustainable impact that lasts beyond National Bullying Prevention Month in October.
