Breakdown of Incident Totals and Historical Data
House Bill 276 obligates all school districts to develop and adopt an Anti-Harassment/Intimidation/ Bullying policy. Policy # 5517.01, “Bullying and Other Forms of Aggressive Behavior,” requires that we semi-annually provide a written summary of all reported incidents of harassment, intimidation and/or bullying that take place in the classroom, on school property, to and from school, or at school-sponsored events to the President of the Board of Education. Additionally, this same information must be reported to the Ohio Department of Education through EMIS and posted on our district website. The reporting requirement is limited to the number of verified acts that meet this definition.
The building administration identifies these different behaviors or incidents under separate reporting codes via EMIS: #19 - Harassment/Intimidation, #82 - Verbal Threat, #86 - Verbal/Written Threat to Another Student, and #90 - Bullying. The law requires that we report the total number of verified incidents involving any of these codes. The total number of verified incidents is 60 for the 2022-2023 school year (August 17, 2022 through August 15, 2023). This is a breakdown of the number of incidents by code:
