Bullying and Harassment
City Schools takes all incidents of bullying and harassment seriously. Included below are internal and external resources for parents, students, schools, and the broader City Schools' community about preventing, reporting and intervening in bullying and harassment incidents in school.
Reporting of Bullying and Harassment Incidents
Step 1. Contact your child’s school and verbally report bullying incident.
Step 2. Complete a Bullying & Harassment Form available at your child’s school. The form can also be obtained online (en español) and submitted to the school. Reports may be submitted electronically by completing this form online.
The school principal/designee investigates the incident within 2 school days. Resolution for incidents is given to parents/ guardians within this same period of 2 school days.
The school submits the report, investigation and intervention taken in the City Schools online Harassment application within 2 school days.
Appropriate disciplinary action is taken. All suspensions for bullying should be accompanied by both a Bullying, Harassment, or Intimidation report and an Investigation report.
Step 3. If not satisfied with the investigation, contact the Office of Student Support through our Safety Hotline at 410-396-SAFE.
The Office of Student Support will work with the school to ensure that the incident is investigated within 2 school days. The Office of Student Support will ensure that resolution is sufficient.
