Bullying

We strive to make every child's educational experience positive and feel school should be a place where all children feel safe and welcome. Southington teacher's are provided with resources to help educate students about bullying and bullying prevention.  I work with both bullies and victims on an individual basis to address their needs.  In addition, a wide variety of programming has been offered over the past several years.  Programming changes yearly to meet the ever changing needs of our students.  If you have a concerns regarding your child or bullying please contact me at 330-898-7480 extension 124, or print the Bullying Reporting Form found below and bring it to my office.
 
Keep in mind that bullying is a repeated and deliberate act with intent to humiliate or injure the victim in some way.  The aggressor in bullying situations is stronger or dominant over the victim.  Disciplinary action will be taken in all confirmed bullying cases.  Teachers will also be notified.  At times, bullying complaints are found to be conflicts where both parties are involved in bothering each other and are put off limits from one another. The Bullying Assessment flow chart below is a tool used in helping identify bullying.
