• Policy Summary

    Bullying by Conestoga Valley students is strictly prohibited in School Board policy. The Board recognizes that bullying creates an atmosphere of fear and intimidation, detracts from the safe environment necessary for student learning, and may lead to more serious violence.

    Reporting & Discipline

    Students who have been bullied should promptly report such incidents to the building principal or his/her designee. Complaints will be investigated promptly, and corrective action will be taken when allegations are verified. Confidentiality of all parties will be maintained, consistent with the district’s legal and investigative obligations. Reprisal or retaliation that occurs as a result of good faith reports of bullying will not be tolerated.

    A student who violates this policy will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action consistent with the Code of Student Conduct. See infraction code 27 “Bullying,” in Appendix A: Discipline Decision-Making Guide for specific actions.
