Tumwater School District

 Anti-Harassment (Bullying) Policies and Procedures
 

In June, 2011 the District formed a committee of administrators, counselors, teachers and parents to update our anti-harassment policies and procedures to comply with legislation that was passed in 2010. New policy, procedure and reporting forms have been created. School administrators schedule time annually to educate staff and students. 

Key Components of the Policy and Procedures:

  • Annual training will be provided to all staff and students on bullying recognition and prevention. 
  • Reporting forms will be explained to staff and students and posted prominently in each building and on the website.
  • Students, parents/guardians, and community members/volunteers may report bullying to any staff member.
  • Each site will designate a compliance officer for this issue. The District Compliance Officer is Kim Howard, Coordinator of Communications and Community Relations 360-709-7003 kim.howard@tumwater.k12.wa.us

    A summary brochure is linked below.  It is also available at all schools and is being sent to all families in the summer, 2014 mailer. 
Below are links to the new policy, procedure and reporting forms.
