The Olweus program, according to its website, is a whole-school program with 35 years of research shown to prevent or reduce bullying.  L.B. Williams and Gertie Belle Rogers Elementary are the first two schools to use the program before it is implemented district-wide in Mitchell. (Sean Ryan/The Daily Republic)
