Harassment, Assault, and Bullying

Throughout this school year, CMCSS and individual schools have reached out and asked families to partner with us to address escalating student behaviors such as vandalism linked to social media challenges and threats of school violence. We have received concerns and feedback from faculty, staff, administrators, students, parents/guardians, and community members about the increasing level of incivility, disrespect, anger, and violence of both students and adults. We are asking families to partner with us to address these concerns. A safe and respectful environment in school is necessary for students to learn and achieve and critical for our faculty, staff, and administrators to support our students effectively. CMCSS prohibits acts of harassment, intimidation, bullying, and hazing by students, district personnel, and volunteers or other third parties in the school environment. Students and adults are expected to demonstrate appropriate behavior, treat others with civility and respect, and refuse to tolerate bullying-related acts.  To date, CMCSS schools have investigated nearly 100 accusations of bullying-related acts and harassment this school year and there have been hundreds of cases of fighting and assault. Additionally, there have been several incidents of students, parents/guardians, and other adults using threatening and abusive language and actions towards teachers, staff, and administrators. Students and adults are expected to immediately report incidents of harassment, intimidation, bullying, hazing, assault, or any other threatening or unsafe behaviors to any administrator, teacher, school resource officer, school counselor, or other school or district personnel. For more information, refer to the CMCSS Student Code of Conduct or the District’s Harassment, Intimidation, Bullying, and Hazing Policy. Due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), CMCSS cannot share specific disciplinary actions taken against students, but the Student Code of Conduct provides the consequences of each founded offense. In addition to disciplinary measures per the Student Code […]
