We are the only nonprofit organization in Minnesota with a service to help your school:
- Assess the effectiveness of your bullying prevention efforts compared to national benchmarks.
- Receive actionable information for improving your learning environment.
- Track student survey results over time.
- Assess needs, identify goals and make a plan.
PeaceMaker Minnesota donors cover the costs for schools in our network to administer the Olweus Bullying Questionnaire (OBQ) on a yearly basis to their entire student body grades three and up.
You choose to give your students the OBQ on paper or have them take it online (computer, tablet, etc.). It is 40 questions and you can add two questions of your own. It takes about 45 minutes to administer and it is available in English or Spanish.
In addition to paying for your school to receive a 74 page analysis of your OBQ, PeaceMaker also arranges for a short analysis by The Improve Group that is ideal for sharing with your school board, staff and parents to gain their support of your work.
You cannot change what you do not know. Every effective program starts with knowing where you are and what you want to achieve.
To receive funding or to hear the student perspective of your school climate, please join our network by becoming a partner school.
