Gender violence and bullying prevention

Thursday, April 26, 2018

The Center for Violence Prevention (CVP) and the Governor’s Office of Bullying Prevention Task Force, in partnership with the Iowa Department of Education and other Pre-K- 12 representatives, released its Primary Prevention Action Report for Iowa Schools and Communities.

The report expands on Iowa’s harassment and bullying law, Iowa Law 280.28, by examining current prevention practices and challenges that schools and communities experience, along with a recommended framework that supports both school and community leaders to increase the likelihood that gender violence and bullying will be significantly reduced or eliminated.
