On June 10, 2008, the Legislature passed House Bill 669, the Jeffrey Johnston Stand Up for All Students Act. This act requires that all Florida districts adopt a policy prohibiting bullying and harassment of students and staff on school grounds, at school-sponsored events, and through computer networks.

Miami Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) is committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students. To this end, M-DCPS is dedicated to eradicating bullying and harassment in its schools by providing awareness, prevention and education in promoting a school atmosphere in which bullying, harassment, and intimidation will not be tolerated by students, school board employees, visitors, or volunteers.
