RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The N.C. Center for Safer Schools is launching a special monthlong effort to bring attention to the issue of bullying as Gov. Pat McCrory proclaims October as Bullying Awareness and Prevention Month.

One part of the center’s work to help communities is a Train-the-Presenter Training, available for school administrators, teachers and community leaders. It’s aimed at preparing people from across the state to return to their communities to share strategies on preventing and identifying bullying, and giving them resources to use when bullying is present.

The N.C. Department of Public Safety says recent research shows 20 percent of high school students in the state report being bullied in the past year, and that nearly 60 percent of high school students have witnessed bullying in their schools in that same period.
