Bullying Prevention

All students have the right to be free from bullying, harassment, or intimidation. The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) is committed to providing a safe, productive, and inclusive learning environment. 

Bullying is symptomatic of relationship problems and best addressed holistically by students, schools, parents/caregivers, and the entire community. 

The Student Services and Strategic Planning Branch staff provide leadership and technical assistance to local school systems to promote a safe environment conducive to learning and free from bullying and harassment.
