Introduction to OLWEUS

To FCPS and WKMS Staff:  OLWEUS was adopted by FCPS at the start of the 2011-12 school year and is one of the essential pieces of WKMS' PBIS program.   All WKMs staff are committed to implementing and supporting this program.

To WKMS Students:  Students have regular lessons, classroom meetings and activities with their advisory teachers to support their understanding of Olweus.  Students responded to a bullying survey in June, 2011, which gave the initial data and "picture" of bullying at WKMS with which staff used to implement the program.  Surveys will be repeated to compare results on a regular basis.
