ONLINE BULLYING COMPLAINT FORM
On August 16, 2012 the Milford School Board approved additions to its Hazing and Bullying policy, file JFCF. For a complete copy of the policy, please click on the link on the right column of this page.
The Board has added the requirements from recently passed House Bill 116, the “Jessica Logan Act”. The policy now states that “Students found responsible for harassment, intimidation or bullying by an electronic act may be suspended. Another addition to the policy specifically states that students could face suspension for acts of harassment, intimidation or bullying on a school bus.
We encourage students and adults to report bullying to our school principals. The primary way to report is to call the principal of the school directly so that he/she can document all of the information necessary for a thorough investigation of the allegation.
An adult or student can also choose to make their report anonymously. We have an anonymous report line, and the phone number is 513-576-2388. The reporter will need to follow the prompts to report the incident to the appropriate school administrator. If you choose to report in this way, please be as specific as possible so that we can investigate the alleged bullying.
We have started a new way to report incidents of bullying online. You can choose to complete the form anonymously or give your name. See form below.ALLEGATION OF HARRASSMENT, INTIMIDATION OR BULLYING OFFICIAL COMPLAINT FORM.
Milford Schools has trained our staff in the Olweus anti-bullying approach in grades k-9 and have received a grant to train our 10-12 staff as well. All staff have received basic training in anti-bullying procedures. The Olweus approach encourages those students or adults who are not directly involved in the bullying to stand up for the victim and to report the incident to teachers and administrators. The goal of OLWEUS is to create an environment within each of our school buildings in which bullying is not tolerated, and the students feel supported by each other and the school staff. We want every student in Milford Schools to feel safe at school and enjoy their experience without any fear of intimidation, harassment or bullying.
