Report Bullying
Reports of bullying or retaliation may be made by staff, students, parents or guardians, or others, and may be oral or written. 

 


Reporting by Staff

A staff member will report immediately to the principal or designee when he/she witnesses or becomes aware of conduct that may be bullying or retaliation.  The requirement to report to the principal or designee does not limit the authority of the staff member to respond to behavioral or disciplinary incidents consistent with school or district policies and procedures for behavior management and discipline.

 


Reporting by Students, Parents or Guardians, and Others

The District expects students, parents or guardians, and others who witness or become aware of an instance of bullying or retaliation involving a student to report it to the principal or designee.  Reports may be made anonymously, but no disciplinary action will be taken against an alleged aggressor solely on the basis of an anonymous report.  Students, parents or guardians, and others may request assistance from a staff member to complete a written report. 

 

Oral Reporting: Oral reports made by or to a staff member shall be recorded in writing onto an Incident Reporting Form. 

 

Anonymous Reporting Links: Reports may be made anonymously using the anonymous reporting form available on each school’s web site.
