Colorado Model Bullying Prevention and Education Policy

Policy Folder


The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) is authorized by C.R.S. 22-2-144, also known as "Ashawnty's Law," with developing a model bullying prevention and education policy. The purpose of this model policy is to provide guidance to school districts, charter schools, and the Charter School Institute when developing bullying prevention and education policies. The model policy is not required to be adopted by any local education agency.

The Colorado model bullying prevention and education policy is to be informed through research on the approaches, policies, and practices related to bullying prevention and education used by education providers in other states. By July 1, 2019, the results of the research and the model policy will be published on this website. The research and model policy is required to be updated every three years.
