Creating and enforcing policies that show students how they should treat each other can be one of the most effective ways to prevent bullying in schools. Administrators can do so through mission statements, which create a vision for their schools. Other policies that can reduce bullying include codes of conduct, which describe behavioral standards, and student bills of rights, which cover basic expectations that students should have of their schools. Giving students and parents a role in creating an anti-bullying plan can help to make sure its message takes hold. Administrators should also be sure to implement a clear and easy procedure for reporting bullying and other rule violations, making sure to track infractions over time and keep all reports confidential.

Anthony Caparoso works as a Vice Principal for the Franklin Township Board of Education in Somerset, New Jersey. Mr. Caparoso possesses 16 years of experience in education as both a teacher and an administrator.

Elementary school vice principals perform a variety of tasks in order to ensure proper operation of an educational institution. Directly under the principal, vice principals collaborate with teachers and other administrators to understand issues faced by their schools and to create new regulations. Additionally, they institute rules based on policies enacted by Boards of Education.

People in this role must fulfill human resources functions by evaluating current staff and hiring new employees. Vice principals also concern themselves with students by monitoring troubled pupils, encouraging positive behavior, and enhancing security throughout the school. Maintaining the upkeep of the facility and its technology serves as another key responsibility, and vice principals often file grant applications for increased funds.
