Franklin County Schools (FCS) take acts of bullying very seriously! They developed a way to take the angst out of reporting bullying incidents by creating an online FCS Anonymous Bullying Report.
The reporting form is located under the “Parent” tab on the district’s homepage. Submitting a complaint is completely anonymous and the form does not track who sent the report. It asks specific questions that help generate an appropriate and thorough investigation. Questions include asking the name of the person being bullied, the dates of the alleged incident(s), the name of the alleged bully and if the alleged bully is a student, school employee or other.
This is a great resource for districts that may want to implement the same approach in the fight against bullying. Take a look at the report form here:
