Bullying Resources  

http://store.samhsa.gov/apps/bullying/  

Research shows that parents and caregivers who spend at least 15 minutes a day talking with their child can build the foundation for a strong relationship and help prevent bullying. 

The time you spend will help boost your children’s confidence and build effective strategies for facing bullying—whether children are being bullied, engaging in bullying, or witnessing bullying. 

 Take a few minutes and “check in,” by asking about school, their friends, and any challenges they face. KnowBullying has simple conversation starters to begin a discussion with your child. 

 

App Features

 

·     Conversation Starters: Start easy, meaningful conversations with your children.

 

·     Tips: Learn strategies to prevent bullying for ages 3—6, 7—13, and teens.

 

·     Warning Signs: Recognize if your child is engaging in bullying, being bullied, or witnessing bullying.

 

·     Reminders: Talk with your child when the time feels right: a quiet moment on the way to school or a game, during dinner, or relaxing outside.

 

·     Social Media: Share successful strategies and useful advice via Facebook, Twitter, email, and text messages.

ACT Aspire Alabama Benchmarks

ACT Aspire readiness levels are reported as Ready, Close or In Need of Support.  Students in the Ready category have met the ACT Readiness Benchmark, and are on target for 50% or higher likelihood of college course success by grade 11.  Students in the Close category scored below, but near the ACT Readiness Benchmark, considering the measurement error.  These students should be able to achieve Ready by working harder through their areas of improvement throughout the year at home and in the classroom.  Student in the In Need of Support category performed substantially below the ACT Readiness Benchmark and may need help through various interventions offered at Trace Crossings.
