D300 Parent University Presents: Bullying: Empowering Parents and Children

D300 Parent University will host Bullying: Empowering Parents and Children on October 21st from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the District 300 Central Office (2550 Harnish Drive, Algonquin, IL). The presentation will feature speaker Todd Rohlwing, District 300’s Director of School Safety.

Bullying is aggressive behavior that involves unwanted, negative actions; it involves a pattern of behavior that is repeated over time, and involves an imbalance of power or strength. Research shows that kids who are bullied are more likely to experience depression and anxiety, health complaints and decreased academic achievement. Bullies are more likely to abuse alcohol and drugs, get into fights, drop out of school and be abusive to others even into adulthood. Even bystanders demonstrate increased mental health issues including anxiety and depression. 

Bullying is a serious social and emotional issue that our kids face every day – whether they are the bullies, the targets or the bystanders. Bullying is a safety concern and a distraction from learning. Parents play a key role in partnering with schools to prevent and put an end to bullying. 

Todd Rohlwing, D300 Director of Safety will be sharing a wealth of knowledge about the causes, effects and prevention techniques for bullying. He will also provide important information about District 300 school response and policies and what parents can do if their children are involved in bullying situations. 

The information shared will be relevant to a broad audience including educators and parents of students with any and all disabilities. There will be ample time for questions and answers after the presentation. We hope you will join us! 

This is a free program; reservations are not necessary. Spanish translation and other accommodations will be provided upon request. Babysitting services are NOT available. For further information contact Judy Ruffulo (847) 212-6371.
