In July 2011, SCUSD launched a comprehensive bullying prevention program focused on reducing bullying and harassment of students district-wide. The program is designed to address the issue of bullying systemically and follows the district’s strategic plan on bullying prevention developed in August 2011 (see attachment).
The SCUSD School Board also adopted an Anti Bullying policy in June 2011 (see attachment) to help ensure a caring and nondiscriminatory learning environment for all students.
For more information about SCUSD’s Bullying Prevention program, please contact Jessica Wharton, Bullying Prevention Specialist, at Jessica-Wharton@scusd.edu.
Bullying behavior that involves student to student aggression may be reported to any SCUSD employee or administrator verbally or in writing. Although not required, the district’s Report of Suspected Bullying Form may be used to make a report.
After completing, the report should be forwarded to the administrator at the school site where the targeted student attends. Reports may also be sent to the district’s Bullying Prevention Specialist, however, these will be forwarded to the appropriate site administrator.
