On Wednesday, October 28, 2015, the Elk Grove Unified School District will be among the participants at the “Stand Up, Speak Out” 3rd annual youth rally against bullying at the west steps of the State Capitol.  This event will be held from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and will include a wall of acceptance, multi-cultural displays, and a pledge wall to STAND UP, SPEAK OUT against bullying. There will also be giveaways, raffle prizes and booths. The Elk Grove Unified School District will provide information about EGUSD’s anti-bullying efforts.  The event is being presented by the Sacramento Regional Coalition for Tolerance, partnership of OCA (Organization of Chinese Americans), and former Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg.


EGUSD has long had strategies in place for bullying prevention and intervention to help keep students safe and ensure a healthy learning environment.  The district has an extensive board policy on bullying that covers a variety of areas, including cyberbullying, bullying prevention, intervention, complaints and investigation, discipline and enforcement mechanisms.

We look forward to the opportunity to head to the capitol next week and participate in a regional effort to combat all forms of bullying.
