Seon campaign aims to stop bullying on the bus

In conjunction with National Bullying Prevention Month in October, Seon is launching a campaign that targets bullying on school buses.

The ongoing campaign, dubbed "No Bullies on My Bus," will entail a variety of bullying awareness activities and will be promoted at the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) Summit in October.

In a new post on Seon's blog, Marketing Coordinator Tia O'Grady notes that Seon surveillance cameras capture evidence of bullying on school buses and help deter such behavior.

"Camera systems are one tool to stop bullying on the school bus, but perhaps even more important is taking strides to prevent bullying through anti-bullying awareness campaigns, policies and education," O'Grady writes.

To that end, Seon's efforts planned for October include holding a "Bullies Aren't Cool" coloring contest for kids, supporting other anti-bullying campaigns, distributing anti-bullying buttons at the NAPT trade show and posting weekly blog entries on the topic.
