What steps should schools take to stop bullying?

This will vary depending on the nature and extent of the bullying.  At a minimum, a school should:

make sure that the bullied students and their families know how to report any subsequent problems

conduct followup inquiries to see if there have been any new incidents or any retaliation

respond promptly to address continuing or new problems

Appropriate steps to stop bullying may include:

separating the accused aggressor and the target of the bullying (without requiring the bullied student to change his or her class schedule)

providing counseling for the target and/or the aggressor

taking disciplinary action against the aggressor

training for the aggressors and the larger school community
