In 2011, North Dakota legislators put new bullying legislation into effect. While the New England School District has always had a policy against bullying, this legislation caused us to take a comprehensive look at our existing policy and improve upon it. A committee of district patrons, administration, and school board members worked to bring the school into compliance with the state mandate.
The full policy statement on bullying can be found in the student and staff handbooks.
The Student Bullying Reporting Form and Staff Bullying Reporting Form are intended to provide an avenue for students, staff and/or patrons to report an alleged bullying incident that they are involved in or have witnessed. Bullying Forms can be downloaded using the links below.
All reports of alleged bullying will be investigated. The individual filing the complaint has the option of whether or not to place his/her name on the report. While a complaint may be filed anonymously, it may limit the district’s ability to investigate and respond to alleged violations. All investigations will be handled in a strictly confidential manner in accordance with the school’s bullying policy.
