Bullying Prevention & Intervention Plan
This plan was developed in consultation with teachers, school staff, professional support personnel, school volunteers, administrators, community representatives, the local law enforcement agency, students, parents and guardians. Furthermore, the consultation included a public comment period from November 1, 2010 to December 1, 2010. A public forum was held at the beginning of the year to inform the community and parents of the Bullying Prevention and Intervention Planning Process. In addition, all parents received a phone message to inform parents and students that the draft of the Plan was posted on the Carver Public School’s website, www.carver.org. Also, a public service announcement was broadcasted on Carver’s cable television (CCAT) during the open comment period with information regarding how to access the website and the Plan.
The school/district provides to students and parents or guardians, in age-appropriate terms, and in the languages which are most prevalent among the students, parents or guardians, annual written notice of the relevant student-related sections of the Bulling Prevention and Intervention Plan as part of the parent/student handbook.
The school/district provides to all school staff annual written notice of the Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plan in the faculty and staff handbooks. The faculty and staff at each school are trained annually on the Plan applicable to the school. Relevant sections of the Plan relating to the duties of faculty and staff are included in all school district or school employee handbooks.
Annual Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plan professional development for all faculty and staff is provided. A timeline of Plan development work, changes and/or additions to the curricula, and collaboration with families and Plan development can be found in Appendix F.
The Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plan will be reviewed annually by the administrative staff and updated as needed.
Each school principal or his/her designee is responsible for the implementation and oversight of the Plan at his/her school.
