Procedures for reporting allegations of bullying
Bullard Independent School District
The District prohibits bullying on school property, at school-sponsored or school-related activities, or in any vehicle operated by the District. Bullying may include verbal or written expression, expression through electronic means, or physical conduct. Bullying is not tolerated by the District, and any student or parent of a student who believes that the student or another student has experienced bullying or that a student has engaged in bullying is encouraged to immediately report the incident. Retaliation against anyone involved in the reporting process is a violation of District policy and is prohibited.
Students or parents may report an alleged incident of bullying, orally or in writing, to a teacher, counselor, principal or other District employee. Students or parents may contact the District to obtain an incident report form that may be used to submit the report.
Please note that after submission of the complaint to the District employee, the District may assign the report to a campus administrator to follow up on the submitted report and any other important matters pertaining to the report. We encourage you to communicate with your designated campus administrator during this time.
More information about the district’s bullying policy can be found in BISD Board Policy FFI(Local) or the campus administration office.
