Reporting Bullying

The District takes all reports of bullying very seriously and reviews any allegations of such instances to ensure the safety of all students and staff. In addition to the District's Superintendent's Bullying Hotline, the District has added two new methods for reporting instances of bullying. Initial reports should be made to the building administrator. The methods for reporting bullying now include:
