Bullying Prevention Site Action Plans

From Student Services

Bullying Prevention Site Action Plans are due to the Office of Student Services by October 29th, 2021. Within the Bullying Prevention Site Action Plan Folder, you will find a plan labeled with your building name. On the right hand column, you enter your building’s specific information for each section. When completing your action plan, think what protective factors do we have in place to reduce bullying? How do we include all members of our community in this? How do we consistently respond to alleged instances of bullying?

Please also include any supporting documentation, which can be linked in your document. If you have questions or would like to walk through your document with someone from Student Services, please contact Tracie Chauvin.

Electronic Reporting Forms for Injuries and Incidents

From Communications & Marketing

Just a quick reminder that many of the forms you need when it comes to incidents are now electronic.

Student injury forms have now been included to the list.

To find the reporting form for students go to this link:

To make the reporting of workman’s compensation accidents less time consuming, the Supervisors Accident Report is now an electronic form.

Regardless of severity, immediate supervisors & directors are required to report all work-related injuries within 48 hours to Risk Management.

To do so, please use the following link:

The Incident Report helps document any incident involving non employees.

This includes our students, visitors, parents and guardians.

The incident form is to be filled out for a number of situations including: a child is missing, if a student is injured in a way that could require medical attention in the future, police have to be called during an incident,  there is a fight,  or even to report property damage.

An example of a fight that needs to be recorded- a fight that breaks out that others are around and it may have been recorded. A fight that someone may not realize they are injured immediately but could later on in the day. Fights that do NOT need to be recorded: two kids on the playground hit each other in the arm over a ball.

There may be other incidents that could also require use of this form.

If you have questions about whether an incident falls into this category, please reach out to your IIO.

Here is a link to the Incident Report form:

From Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)
Just a reminder that we are administering both the mySAEBRS (student SEL self-assessment for 3rd-12th grade) and the SAEBRS (teacher administered on each student – K-12th grade). Previous communication regarding the SAEBRS and mySAEBRS was shared on 9-10-21 and 9-14-21 through the Administrators Desk. Based on feedback from the system, some may have forgotten that we were administering those assessments. Therefore, to ensure we can get as many 3rd-12th grade students to take the mySAEBRS, we have extended the window until September 30. The SAEBRS window is currently open and will close on September 30th as well. Please refer to the Comprehensive Assessment Plan  for the assessment schedule.
