Bullying Reporting Procedures

Procedures for Reporting Allegations of Bullying

Carthage ISD

The district prohibits bullying on school property, at school-sponsored or school-related activities, or in any vehicle operated by the district. Bullying may be verbal or written expression or 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 complaint process is a violation of district policy and is prohibited.

Students or parents may report an alledged 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 complaint or download and print the form on the CISD website.

Please note that after submission of the complaint to the district employee, the district may assign the complaint to a campus administrator to follow up on the submitted complaint and any other important matters pertaining to the complaint. We encourage you to communicate with your designated campus administrator during the time.

More information about the district's bullying policy can be found at Board Policy FFI (LEGAL) and FFI (LOCAL) or the campus administration office.
