Students cannot make verbal and/or implied threats to teachers/staff or other students. Statements, actions or digital communication that can alarm, disturb, harm, or interfere with the orderly operation of the school will not be tolerated. The district board of education prohibits acts of harassment, intimidation or bullying of a student. The district board of education has determined that a safe and civil environment in school is necessary for students to learn and achieve high academic standards; harassment, intimidation or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a student's ability to learn and a school's ability to educate its students in a safe and disciplined environment.
This form has been created to help provide a safe means of reporting an incident of bullying to school personnel. It is designed to remain anonymous and it is encouraged that bystanders of bullying incidents report their observations so appropriate action can be taken. Victims of bullying are also encouraged to use this form as well as reporting the incident directly to the staff at MTHS.
A reprisal or retaliation against any person who reports an act of bullying is prohibited. A student's act of reprisal or retaliation will be treated as bullying for purposes of determining any consequences or other appropriate remedial actions.
A student will not be punished for reporting bullying or supplying information, even if the school's investigation concludes that no bullying occurred. However, knowingly making a false accusation or providing knowingly false information will be treated as bullying for purposes of determining any consequences or other appropriate remedial actions.
Thank you for taking the time to complete this form. MTHS appreciates your help in maintaining a safe environment for our students.
