Stopbullying.gov : Bullying occurs during and after school hours.  It happens in the school building, within the community, and on the internet.  This website offers teachers insight to what bullying is; actions to take when you are a bystander to bullying; as well as classroom management techniques to prevent bullying.  This website has been completely revamped!
