In July of 2013, the State of Indiana enacted a law designed to address bullying in schools. The law provides a definition of “bullying,” and provides requirements for both reporting alleged bullying instances to school officials and procedures that schools must following when investigating and addressing alleged bullying.
We highly encourage parents to familiarize themselves with our bullying policy (Policy 5517.01) and to view our Bully Prevention and Intervention presentation and handout. For additional information and questions about volunteering and volunteer requirements, please contact your child’s school.
The MSDWT provides students in K-12 with many Bullying Prevention and Bullying Education presentations and activities. The district-designed framework outlines activities and materials which each grade level incorporates in their buildings. This framework ensures consistent information and assurance that all students have received, at minimum, the same level of anti-bullying resources. Each building may enhance or add to the district framework.
Questions regarding a specific building’s approach to the topic of bullying should be directed to the building principal.
