1 in every 4 kids is bullied every day, and 160,000 students miss school every day for fear of being bullied or harassed. It’s virtually impossible for kids to focus on learning when they are concerned for their safety. But what can a district do to help these kids?

Creating a healthy learning environment goes beyond just reporting bullying incidents—it must include a process for raising student awareness, providing a variety of reporting methods for ALL types of behavior incidents, and a formal analytics tool that provides insight by uncovering behavior patterns and  providing formal resolution tracking by key stakeholders.

At Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, we will partner with your district to create a safer, more productive learning environment for your students. Starting with assessing where your district is currently, we’ll design and implement a comprehensive solution that may include student awareness programs, providing professional training to teachers and administrators, and iNsight, an innovative online tool that allows for the anonymous reporting, tracking and trend analysis of all types of incidents.

Together, we can make a difference.
