The strategy was introduced in June, 2012, and includes 10 key elements:

  1. A five-year, multi-level training program for educators and community partners to help them proactively identify and address threats.
  2. An anonymous online reporting tool for students.
  3. Dedicated safe school co-ordinators in every school district.
  4. Stronger codes of conduct for schools.
  5. Provincial guidelines for threat assessments.
  6. New online resources for parents.
  7. Formal protocols to guide and co-ordinate the work of school and community partners.
  8. A provincial advisory committee with representatives from police, school and social agency partners.
  9. Focusing one of the existing six provincial teacher professional development days on anti-bullying.
  10. Anti-bullying and threat assessment training for pre-service teachers.

Thank you for stopping by to check out the ERASE Bullying online reporting tool. This tool is accessible through computers and smart phones, and will allow students, parents or other witnesses to report bullying or other threatening behaviour, anytime and anywhere.

The online reporting tool has just been developed and is in the final stages of testing.

If you need help, please reach out to someone you trust, like a parent, friend or teacher. Or, you can reach out to someone who doesn’t know you for support. There is a list of youth-oriented support lines and websites on this site just for you.
