Report a Possible Bullying Incident

kNOw Bullying
When investigating a possible bullying situation, we will test the situation against the following three questions:
  1. Does the individual suspected of bullying have more power than the individual suspected of receiving the bullying behavior?

  2. Have there been a series of incidents?

  3. Has it been the intention of the individual suspected of bullying to purposely cause harm to the the individual suspected of receiving the bullying behavior?

If the answer to any of the questions is "no," then you are aware of an issue that does not qualify as bullying but is negative and should be reported directly to your parent, teachers, counselors, or administrators.

If the answer to all three questions is "yes," then it is possible you are aware of a bullying incident. Thoroughly detail the situation in the text box below.

Explain the situation you believe may qualify as bullying. Include the names of those involved and as many details as possible so we may thoroughly investigate. If you provide too few names or details, we may not be able to investigate.
