More information on Bivona:

Through a strategic partnership with the Monique Burr Foundation, Bivona utilizes the MBF’s Safety Matters® Lessons in area schools to provide vital personal safety to staff and students. MBF curriculums are comprehensive, evidence-based prevention education programs for students in grades K-12. Through the use of 5 universal safety rules and strategies following recommendations of poly-victimization research, the programs teach students and adults how to prevent, recognize, and respond appropriately to the four types of child abuse (physical, emotional, sexual, neglect), bullying, cyberbullying, and digital dangers. Each uses active learning strategies and reinforcement materials and are age and developmentally appropriate.
