International Bullying Prevention Conference
 
C1. Protecting Immigrant Students from Bullying and Harassment

Speaker
Michelle Nutter, Safe and Supportive Schools Manager, PA Center for Safe Schools


Description
As political rhetoric calls for the building of walls and deportation of immigrants, schools face the challenge of responding to students making similar remarks. This session will provide an overview of schools’ obligations to create and maintain a harassment-free environment. Participants will review scenarios to identify appropriate response steps that school personnel should take to prevent, intervene in and respond to national origin harassment.
