    • Students who have been subjected to harassment, bullying, and/or discrimination
    • Parents/guardians whose children have been subjected to harassment, bullying, and/or discrimination
    • Anyone who has observed or has been told of harassment, bullying, and/or discrimination against a student or students
    This information is confidential and will be shared with the school principal, Dignity Act Coordinator, and (for incidents involving a student or students at the high school level) the School Resource Officer for immediate investigation and follow-up. Please provide as much information as you can so that the problem can be addressed directly.
