Student safety is our top priority, and we take reports of bullying and cyberbullying very seriously. Our administrators respond to reports of bullying and cyberbullying in accordance to the Indiana Department of Education’s guidelines. Reports of bullying should be made consistent with Perry Township Schools Bullying Policy found below.
The MSD of Perry Township prohibits bullying as described in student discipline code IC 20-33-8-12. The discipline rules adopted by the governing body of a school corporation must apply when a student is; (1) on school grounds immediately before or during school hours, immediately after school hours or at any other time when the school is being used by a school group; (2) off school grounds at a school activity, function or event; (3) traveling to or from school or a school activity, function or event; (4) using property or equipment provided by the school. Bullying can be physical (hitting, kicking, shoving etc.) verbal (taunting, teasing, racial slurs or verbal harassment) or non verbal threatening (obscene gestures). Any of these behaviors occurring repeatedly fall into the category of bullying. Students should immediately report any bullying to a school employee.
Additionally, Perry Township Schools does not tolerate discrimination or harassment in its educational or work environments. Consistent with the policy below, any member of the school community is encouraged to report incidents of discrimination or harassment.
If you have questions regarding bullying procedures at the district level, please contact Mr. Louis Norris at 317-789-3700 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
