Definition of Bullying from the State

found in our Student Handbook:

Neb. Rev.

Statute 79-267,

section 79-2, 137

Bullying includes any written or verbal expression, electronic abuse, physical act, or gesture or a pattern thereof that is intended to cause distress upon  one or more students in a school, on school grounds, in a vehicle owned, leased or contracted by a school being used for a school purpose by a school employee or his or her designee, or at school-sponsored activities/events.





Wilson Focus School believes in a system that supports all students and develops character while providing

what students need to be successful at school. As identified by the Search Institute, there are 40 developmental assets

and the average student comes to school with about 19, we would like them to have at least 31.

All of our positive behavior supports intertwine and crossover to develop the best in everyone.

Reteaching and problem-solving skills as well as relationship building skills are a must.

There are specific things we do as a school that build into our anti-bullying curriculum and develop positive students.

Principal's Message

Message from the Principal

I have long believed in the power of positive behavior supports and creating a positive climate that promotes all round success.  Our school has an anti-bullying curriculum that helps to teach our students empathy skills and strategies to problem-solve.  In 2002 I was on the Anti-Bullying Advisory Committee for the Nebraska Department of Education.  The committee developed a definition of bullying and assisted in developing a vision for the state. The goal was to have local school systems adopt anti-bullying policies under Rule 10. This goal of policy, training and awareness was to be complete by 2008. Since then the state and each district has a definition of bullying and student handbooks identify bullying policies as well as what procedures (steps) can be taken as needed. The success of programs can be measured through various data sources, surveys and climate surveys.
