Harassment/Discrimination Reporting

  •  Harassment, Bullying and/or Discrimination  

     

    The Waterloo Central School District is committed to eliminating harassment, bullying, including cyberbullying, and/or discrimination from our school community.  We believe that a student’s ability to learn and to meet high academic standards, and a school’s ability to educate its students is compromised by incidents of harassment, including taunting, hazing, intimidation, and bullying, and/or discrimination.  Employees, students or community members who have witnessed harassment, bullying, including cyberbullying,  and/or discrimination, or have reliable information that a student has been subject to harassment, bullying, including cyberbullying, and/or discrimination, are encouraged to report the incident to a school administrator immediately.

    The Dignity for All Students Act, effective July 1, 2012, prohibits incidents of harassment, bullying, including cyberbullying,  and/or discrimination, whether a single incident or a series of related incidents, against any student by employees or students on school property or at a school function. Any such incident where a student is subjected to harassment, bullying, including cyberbullying, and/or discrimination that creates a hostile environment of such a severe or pervasive nature that it unreasonably interferes with a student’s educational performance, opportunities, mental or emotional well-being, or causes a student to fear for his or her physical safety, are prohibited. Such conduct shall include, but is not limited to, threats, intimidation or abuse based on a person’s actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practices, disability, sexual orientation, gender or sex.  In addition, other acts of harassment, bullying, including cyberbullying, and/or discrimination, which can reasonably be expected to materially and substantially disrupt the education process, may be subject to discipline or other corrective action.

     

    "Incidents of harassment, bullying, including cyberbullying, and/or discrimination may be reported by mailing it to Terri Bavis, Superintendent of Schools, Waterloo Central Schools, P.O. Box 900, Waterloo, NY 13165, or by bringing the form to your child's building principal." 

     

    NOTE: Anyone who files a report s/he knows to be false will be held responsible and may be reported to an appropriate law enforcement agency.
