Anti-Bullying Reporting Protocols and Resources:
 

At Westerly Public Schools, we believe a student's right to feel safe in school is paramount and contributes significantly to his or her capacity for learning and social development.  Westerly Public Schools believes that preventing bullying, harassment, dating violence and/or sexual violence is critical for creating and maintaining a safe, secure and positive school climate and culture, which in turn supports academic achievement, increases school engagement, respects the rights of all individuals and groups and purposefully builds community. 

Currently, Westerly Public Schools has procedures in place for reporting bullying and dealing with offenders. These procedures largely call on students to approach a trusted adult and describe the incident in detail. It is our belief that bullying goes unreported because students may not be comfortable reporting incidents to school personnel. 

In our on-going effort to maintain a safe learning environment for all of our students, Westerly Public Schools has developed three new reporting mechanisms to report bullying.  We encourage students and families to utilize these resources to report behavior which may indicate an incident of bullying.  School personnel will investigate each incident that is reported and respond accordingly.
 

Please note:  These reports can be made anonymously.
