School Climate for Optimal Learning

Regional School District 13 is committed to each student's success in learning within a caring, responsive, and safe environment that is free of discrimination, violence, and bullying.  Our district works to ensure that all students have the opportunity and support to develop to their fullest potential and share a personal and meaningful bond with people in the school community.
In accordance with state law and the Board's Safe School Climate Plan, "The Board expressly prohibits any form of bullying behavior on school grounds, a school-sponsored or school-related activity, function or program, whether on or off school grounds; at a school bus stop; on a school bus or other vehicle owned, leased or used by a local or regional board of education; or through the use of an electronic device or an electronic mobile device owned, leased or used by the Board of Education." (Policy 5131.8)
Students and guardians of students may file a written report of bullying.  Such reports may be filed with any building or district administrator.  Reports of bullying will be investigated and action will be taken for all verified reports.  All reports will be forwarded to the Office of Student Services and Special Education for review by the district's Safe School Climate Coordinator.
