Bullying and Cyberbullying Training

Virtual Training

The Texas School Safety Center, in collaboration with Safer Schools Together, is hosting a no cost, 7-hour Bullying and Cyberbullying training.

Preventing bullying and mitigating its impact begins with a strong understanding of the legal landscape of Texas bullying laws. This virtual training will walk participants through all Texas bullying and cyberbullying laws, including behaviors that may apply to suspected bullying situations, such as assault, harassment, hazing, stalking, sextortion, dating violence, and related federal laws. Participants will explore Texas mandated expectations for campus staff, rights of victims and parents, related penal code, and determining when behaviors go beyond student discipline and into criminal behavior. Participants will also learn about how bullying manifests on and off campus and how to plan and respond with actionable strategies.

Please Note: This training is open to public ISDs, open-enrollment charter schools, junior colleges, school-based law enforcement, and state agencies that support Texas schools. Due to limited space, vendors and contractors are not permitted to register for this training.

Special Accommodations:

Please submit all special accommodations request(s) via email to txssc_bullying@txstate.edu no later than two weeks prior to the training.
