OSSE Bullying Policy

Tuesday, October 8, 2013

On June 22, 2012, the District of Columbia City Council passed the Youth Bullying Prevention Act of 2012 to address bullying on a comprehensive, citywide level. The policy requires that all District agencies, grantees, and educational institutions that p rovide services to youth adopt a bullying prevention policy. The law includes any entity who provides services to youth on behalf of, or with funding from, the District of Columbia. The law also creates the Mayor’s Task Force on Bullying Prevention whose role is to assist District agencies in their bullying prevention efforts and the creation of their prevention policies. See DC Code § 2 - 1535.01.
