ArkansasIDEAS invites you to

‘Sit with Us’

to learn about bullying prevention!

Bullying is a major problem in our society, and it affects the physical, emotional, and academic health of our children and youth. Moreover, the experience of peer mistreatment can leave invisible scars for all involved—the victims, the bystanders, and the bullies themselves.

Sit With Us: Anti-Bullying Strategies for Arkansas Schools (ERC20073) is available now on

We call you to join our distinguished panel, including national expert Dr. Charisse Nixon and veteran Arkansas educators, as they explore conversations on bullying through the lens of problem-solve simulated scenarios based on in-the-trenches experiences.

This course meets the requirements of Act 1029 of 2019.
