Senior High School's Partnership in Handling Bullying


This study aimed to describe the partnership pattern developed by the state senior high school 1 Depok Sleman in handling bullying cases. This study used a qualitative approach with a descriptive method. The sample included the headmaster, the counseling guidance teacher, the homeroom teachers, and students. The data analysis process used the interactive analysis model developed by Miles and Huberman, which included data reduction, data serving, and conclusion. The results showed that the school has a bullying handling strategy through the school’s partnership program. The school’s leadership forged a partnership with several institutions to handle bullying cases, including West Depok Sector Police, psychologists, parents and the Public Health Center. Cases can be referred internally and externally, while the bullying is handled through individuals and groups. The partnership built by the school runs continuously through various programs for socialization and character strengthening for students. The type of participation that was found to have the strongest contribution in solving school bullying cases was strengthening the student’s character periodically and collaboratively by involving informants and various parties. However, efforts in handling bullying need to be increased to prevent it happening again in the future.
