The Sacramento City Unified School District will host free bully prevention trainings for anyone in the community wanting to learn how to identify bullying behaviors and what to do when a child is being victimized.
The school district will host the first of five community trainings beginning Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at Luther Burbank High School, 3500 Florin Road.
"We're working hard to raise awareness of bullying so our students can better advocate for themselves when bullying occurs," said Sheila Self, a bullying prevention specialist at Sacramento City Unified.
The trainings coincide with the school district's anti-bullying policy that aims to reduce incidents of bullying on campus and on the Internet.
"Bullying is such a high-profile issue," Self said. "We want to make sure families have the tools to recognize it and get help."
