This professional development course is for LAUSD teachers and is available for salary advancement and recertification. When students don't feel safe in school, they don't thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. According to a 2015 survey from the National Center for Educational Statistics, more than one out of every five students (20.8%) has reported being bullied.
Bullying takes many forms and impacts not only the student being bullied, but the entire school community. Teachers in this course will be equipped with the knowledge and tools to build safe school communities that identify bullying behaviors quickly (and even before they happen), empower students to move from bystander to advocate, and use character development and social-emotional learning to build stronger school communities.
Techniques for effective interventions as well as best practices from both a teacher and school-wide perspective will be provided to enable educators to address (cyber)bullying concerns within their respective schools and communities. Teachers will leave this professional learning course with a framework for implementing classroom meetings to foster a positive classroom climate, integrating social-emotional learning/character education, and speaking with key stakeholders (parents, other teachers, and administrators) to prevent (cyber)bullying in and out of the classroom.
Participants will be able to:
Conclude that building and maintaining safe communities for children facilitates their learning and fosters positive personal growth and development
Develop a fundamental understanding of bullying behavior and the roles that stakeholders play
Differentiate between types of intimidating behavior including aggression, discriminatory harassment, and cyberbullying
Evaluate how differing forms of bullying warrant various intervention and prevention approaches
Assess the need for bullying prevention interventions within his/her own classrooms, schools, and districts
Propose effective teacher-based strategies for bullying intervention/prevention both within and outside the classroom: character education, social-emotional learning, and classroom management strategies
Conclude how social-emotional learning and character education is a foundation for fostering citizenship in students and promoting safe and supportive learning environments
Establish communities of practice within a school that act as collaborative measures in facilitating and maintaining positive school culture and climate

Receiving Salary Points
Upon completion, your completion paperwork will be submitted directly to the LAUSD Professional Development Unit by CE Credits Online along with the NA Claim for Staff Development Point Project form at the beginning of the following month.
PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT ADDITIONAL PAPERWORK If you decide to request graduate credits for your completed course, the official transcript you receive from the university will be for your own personal records. Each course can only be submitted once, and we will provide all necessary paperwork to LAUSD.
Salary point credit approval for NA Forms is done by the Professional Development Unit and may take up to 3 months to process. The delay in processing your salary points will not affect the eligibility date of your schedule advancement, as they are backdated to the date of completion. If the points from your NA Form have not been posted to your account on the LAUSD website at the end of 3 months, please contact the Salary Allocation Unit at 213-241-5100.
We highly recommend that you check the number of salary points you have in your account before you complete your CE Credits Online course(s). Then check again eight weeks after receiving notification on your Student Homepage that your completion paperwork has been processed and submitted to the Salary Point Committee by CE Credits Online. Since the new salary points are added to your account without identifying the coursework for which you earned the Salary Points this will help you to identify receiving the additional salary point(s).
Receiving Graduate-Level Professional Development Credits
Upon completion, email email@example.com and let us know you have completed the course, which university you have selected (see University Partners).
CE Credits Online will email you instructions on how to pay for and obtain the credits.
CE Credits Online will forward all necessary documentation to the university you selected enabling you to receive an official transcript.
You must check with your district to ensure the credits received will meet your specific requirements. We will not be held responsible if your school, district or state does not accept the credits issued.
