Stand Against Bullying

National Bullying Prevention Month

Though we at Virtual Preparatory Academy of Wyoming are always creating safe spaces for students, October draws special attention to the important issue of bullying. 1 in 5 students now report experiencing bullying behavior in school. It is a serious matter and has become one of the top reasons parents choose online schooling as they seek a more welcoming, kind environment for their kids.

  • Online schools take away the anxiety that can exist in the cafeteria, hallways or school restrooms.
  • We provide an instructional environment where students can focus on learning.
  • We allow parents to choose the social settings their children are exposed to.
  • Most importantly, we focus on strengthening the voice of all students and families.
    • Advisory sessions led by teachers and success coaches
    • Lunch clubs and other online social opportunities supported by trusted staff members
    • Mentor programs
    • Ongoing family surveys to keep a pulse on your thoughts and opinions throughout the entire school year

October is a time to bring awareness to bullying prevention and raise everyone’s voice in this important conversation. It may also serve as a time to evaluate how your child is feeling at school and what options are available to you.

Together, we can create a kinder, more inclusive online school.
