OKLAHOMA CITY — State Superintendent of Public Instruction Janet Barresi has launched a new bullying prevention awareness webpage with tips for counselors and other educators who work with K-12 youth.

“As we work to protect all of our children from the effects of bullying, we’re happy to offer this important prevention resource for educators,” Superintendent Barresi said. “It goes hand in hand with the significant number of resources available to parents and students already on our website and that we present regularly in schools.

“We’re also grateful to the governor and other state lawmakers who have made bullying prevention a priority,” Barresi said.

October is national Bullying Prevention Awareness Month.

The bullying prevention webpage can be found at

On the page, counselors can find a bullying prevention awareness calendar and a bullying prevention month toolkit. There also are links to Gov. Fallin’s proclamation and the State Department of Education's other bullying prevention pages.
