Webinar: Effective Strategies to Address Immigrant Bullying
As schools work to successfully prevent and intervene in acts of bullying, they are often challenged by bullying behaviors that cross the line into civil, civil rights or criminal law violations. Bullying which targets immigrants violates Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin. This webinar will examine bullying in general, and delve into the problem and prevalence of bullying which targets ELLs and immigrant students. The United States Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights, has provided significant guidance through the issuance of a series of "Dear Colleague" letters, which will be reviewed and discussed. Participants will also receive information relative to possible criminal law implications when bullying behaviors cause mental or physical injury to targeted students. This webinar will also examine the legal ramifications of "deliberate indifference" with regard to failure to address bullying in their schools. Finally, the webinar will conclude with information on preventing, recognizing and responding to protected class bullying in order to create a safe, supportive, harassment-free school climate.
