Helping Everyone Respect Others

Triton began the HERO program at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year.  The program is based on the Olweus Bullying Program, which is a research based program found to reduce bullying among children, improve the social climate of classrooms, and reduce related antisocial behaviors, such as vandalism, and truancy.  

Triton defines bullying by three characteristics:
*Actions that are aggressive, negative and unwanted
*Actions that involves patters of repeated behavior 
*Actions that involve an imbalance of power or strength
