• Bullying/Harassment Resources

    We believe in a student's right to feel safe in school is paramount and contributes significantly to his or her capacity for learning and social development. Currently, District 86 schools have a protocol for reporting bullying and dealing with offenders which largely calls on students to approach adults and describe the incident. However, it is our belief that bullying often goes unreported because students, for a number of reasons, may not be comfortable reporting incidents, or reporting incidents to school personnel.

    Hate Language/Racial Discrimination

    We believe in a student's right to feel safe in school is paramount and contributes significantly to his or her capacity for learning and social development. Currently, District 86 schools have a protocol for reporting use of hate language or racial discrimination and dealing with offenders, which largely calls on students to approach adults and describe the incident. However, it is our belief that use of hate language and racial discrimination often goes unreported because students, for a number of reasons, may not be comfortable reporting incidents, or reporting incidents to school personnel.

    We encourage students and parents to report use of hate language or racial discrimination to the deans’ office, a trusted adult, or the Blackboard Tipline, which can be found in the upper right hand corner of each school’s website or by clicking on the link below. When a message is retrieved by school personnel the incident will be investigated and responded to accordingly.
