Hemet USD takes bullying prevention seriously. The governing board recognizes the harmful effects of bullying on student learning. There are a number of laws that address bullying and bullying prevention in schools. Ypou can find a list of these laws at: https://www.stopbullying.gov/laws/california/index.html
The first step in resolving bullying is to report it to the school. The school is unable to address bullying issues until they are aware of the situation. It is important that you report situations where you believe bullying has occurred to a school administrator as soon as you are able.
We have an online reporting system: http://sprigeo.com/ In this system, you are able to report an incident from any device. Your report will then be directed to a school administrator.
For more information on Hemet USD policies, Board Policy 5131.2 addresses bullying specifically and Board Policy 5145.3 addresses nondiscrimination and harassment.
Hemet USD also practices Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports and Restorative Practices to provide meaningful consequences to all students involved in bullying situations-both the students acting as bullies and students who feel they have been the target of bullying.
If you feel the school administration has not adequately addressed your reports to them, please contact Dr. Tracy Piper, Director, Student Support Services at 951.765.5100 ext. 3500 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
