Bullying Prevention & Education
Loudoun County Public Schools implements a county-wide bullying prevention program to teach students how to identify bullying behavior and appropriate ways to handle bullying. Ms. Fleche & Ms. Gerber, our school counselors, implement this program in grades K-5 through whole class counseling lessons, group, and individual counseling.
Stop, Walk, Talk
Every LCPS student is taught how to respond to bullying behavior using a three step program called Stop, Walk, Talk. School counselors incorporate bullying awareness activities into classroom counseling lessons and activities throughout the school year.
1. STOP- Students are taught that if they experience or observe bullying behavior, they should tell the perpetrator to "stop."
2. WALK- Sometimes, even when students tell others to "stop," the problem behavior continues. When this happens, students are to taught to "walk" away from the problem behavior.
3. TALK- Even when students say "stop" and they "walk" away from the problem, sometimes the problem behavior still continues. When that happens, students are taught to "talk" to a trusted adult about what is happening
