What You Can Do About Bullying…

…If Your Child is the Target

  1. Report the incident to your school's Respect for All (RFA) liaison(s) and/or school administration.
  2. Ask for the incident number from school administration for follow up. This is also known as Online Occurrence Reporting System (OORS) number.
  3. The school will investigate and must tell the parent or guardian of the target what they find. If needed, the child may be referred for support services.
  4. If the investigation finds that a student—or students—have been bullying or harassing your child, the school will follow the process described in the Discipline Code.
