Synopsis: We examined factors influencing readiness to implement school-based bullying prevention programs. In structural equation models (n=909), the anticipated effectiveness of prevention programs increased readiness. Logistical demands reduced readiness. Decision control, the extent to which educators could participate in the decision making process, was the best predictor of readiness. This model accounted for 56% of the variance in readiness for bullying program implementation. The severity of bullying, staff consensus regarding program implementation, stakeholder support, and school morale did not improve prediction.
