The CyberBully Hotline from SchoolReach announced the establishment of the CyberBully Hotline grant program.  This newly created program for K-12 schools and districts will award $100,000 in grants to support the implementation of an anonymous bullying reporting solution to help schools reduce and prevent bullying and cyber bullying episodes. Entries for the CyberBully Hotline grant must come from districts or schools that have a high (31-50 percent) or very high (50 percent+) Free and Reduced Lunch rating. Grant applications, available online at the CyberBully Hotline Web site at http://www.cyberbullyhotline.com/grant-program.html, must be submitted by October 31, 2012.  Grants will be reviewed as the award committee receives them, and awarded until funds are exhausted. The maximum award per participant is $2,500 and the grant funds cover a 12-month service period starting from the date of service agreement signing. All terms and conditions of the grant program can be found at CyberBully Hotline grant program website.
