Student Action Plan

Ready to take action to address bullying? Maybe not sure how to start? As a student, bullying is something that impacts you, your peers, and your school – whether you’re the target of bullying, a witness, or the person who bullies. Bullying can end, but that won’t happen unless students, parents, and educators work together and take action.

Start by creating a plan that works for you and your situation. This student action plan is an opportunity for you – either on your own or with your parents and teachers – to develop a strategy to change what’s happening to you or someone else. It’s your chance to make a difference.

The plan includes three steps:

  • Step 1: Describe the bullying that’s happening. Include dates, location, who is involved, and details of the behavior.

  • Step 2: Describe what you would like done about it. Think about how the situation could be stopped or prevented.

  • Step 3: What steps can you take to make that happen? Include who could help, what they can do, and what you can do.

Remember, if you are being bullied, it is not your fault and it is never your responsibility to make it stop. However, it is important that you take action—and learning to advocate for yourself is important! By thinking through a plan you will have a voice in the solution.
