Discipline for Bullying, Cyber-Bullying and Retaliation

 

Students who are found through investigation to have bullied, cyber-bullied or retaliated against a student who reported acts of bullying may be subject to disciplinary action.  Discipline imposed, dependent on the nature and severity of the bullying, cyber-bullying or retaliation can range from a verbal warning to expulsion, subject to applicable procedural requirements.

 

School Administration will notify local law enforcement if it believes that criminal charges may be pursued.

 

Nothing in this section prevents the Westwood Public Schools from imposing disciplinary sanctions on a student whose behavior does not meet the definition of bullying, cyber-bullying or retaliation but which nonetheless violates school policy.

 

Procedure for Reporting Bullying: Please go to your schools website, under "About Our School", Anti-Bullying Policy & Procedures menu, select Reporting. Then fill out the corresponding form and submit.
