Bully Prevention & Non Discrimination

Bully Prevention

The Board of Education is committed to provide all students and District employees with a safe and secure learning and working environment. Bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, and retaliation for reporting such incidents reduce a student’s ability to achieve academically and reduces an employee’s ability to perform their job responsibilities. In addition bullying, cyber- bullying, harassment, hazing and retaliation can directly affect a student’s or an employee’s health and well-being, and may contribute to excessive absences, physical illness, mental and emotional anguish and long-term social and psychological consequences. The Board directs the superintendent to develop procedures to stop and prevent bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing and retaliation.
