Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying

Every student has the right to be educated in an environment free from harassment, intimidation and bullying. NRESC is committed to working to ensure that students feel safe in our setting. This is why we have clear policies and procedures designed to combat and prevent harassment, intimidation and bullying behaviors. In addition to being proactive about harassment, intimidation and bullying, our staff members have been trained in how to identify and respond to such behaviors.

We have an Anti Bullying Specialist at the building level. This staff member actively addresses student, parent and staff concerns related to harassment, intimidation and bullying. At the district level, we have an Anti Bullying Coordinator, who helps to develop policies, procedures and strategies designed to counter any trends related to harassment, intimidation and bullying that may be brought to the attention of the district. Contact information for these individuals is provided below. Please feel free to speak to them if you have any questions or concerns.

As outlined in the Code of Conduct, harassment and bullying are serious offenses and will not be tolerated. To report alleged harassment and bullying that occurred on school property; at a school-sponsored activity or event off school property; or on a school bus, please download and complete the form below. If you are a student victim, the parent/guardian of a student victim, or a close adult relative of a student victim, and wish to report an incident of alleged harassment or bullying, complete the form and return it to the Principal.
