    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 these codes.  The total number of reported incidents is 20 for the first half of the 2019-2020 school year.  Sometimes a single incident resulted in the entering of multiple discipline codes, either due to the involvement of multiple students or the violation of multiple discipline codes.  This is a breakdown of the number of incidents by code and building:
