COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- Teachers and administrators from more than 40 Cobb County schools recently participated in a bullying prevention seminar.

The training session, which was sponsored by the school district's Prevention Intervention Center, taught best practices for handling bullying in classrooms.

Many of the county's schools are already taking steps to end bullying.

At Cooper Middle School in Austell, art teacher Amy Zschaber's students created a digital campaign with slogans and graphic posters calling for their classmates to stand up to bullies. See some of the artwork at cobbcast.cobbk12.org.

Belmont Hills Elementary School in Smyrna uses Second Step, a program that helps elementary and middle school students sharpen their social-emotional skills.

Kennesaw's Lost Mountain Middle School has implemented the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, which promotes tolerance and understanding among students.
