Schuette Recognizes October as National Bullying Prevention Month

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette today recognized October as National Bullying Prevention month.

“Bullying is a leading cause of teen suicide in the country, and Michigan is no exception,” said Schuette. “Students should feel safe and comfortable at school, free from fear of their fellow classmates. I remain committed to the OK2SAY program and continue to be impressed by the results of this initiative.”

The Attorney General offers FREE student safety in-school presentations for K-12th grade students, parents, guardians, and community leaders. To date, more than two million Michigan students have attended a presentation.

Students in K-5th grade receive age-appropriate instruction from the Michigan Cyber Safety Initiative (CSI), a national award-winning program. Students in 6th-12th grade receive dynamic OK2SAY student safety programming.

Adults can learn about our programs and how to host them by attending our Community Seminar or Program Overview. Scheduling is fast and easy on the OK2SAY website.

Presentations are also always available to entire schools. If your school is interested in hosting an OK2SAY/CSI presentation, sign up today on the  OK2SAY website.[links.govdelivery.com]
