A Washington, D.C. task force has compiled a model bullying prevention policy for agencies that serve youth.

Among the recommendations proposed by Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s Youth Bullying Prevention Task Force, all youth-serving agencies will create “youth advisory panels,” which will assist during the drafting and planning of policies.

In addition, the task force is calling for the creation of a program to coordinate bullying prevention initiatives throughout the District and to provide data collection and analysis on policies. The program would also be tasked with ensuring that agencies don’t have conflicting policies.
