Bullying Prevention

Student Bullying Report Form

Our school is participating in the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program.

Bullying of any type has no place in the school setting. The Northwood Public School District #129 will endeavor to maintain a learning and working environment free of bullying.

district sanctioned or sponsored activity or event and which:

The School board expects administrators and supervisors to make it clear to the students and staff that bullying in the school building, on school grounds, on the bus, or at school-sponsored functions will not be tolerated and will be grounds for disciplinary action up to and including suspension or expulsion of students, and termination for employees

Below you will find two forms: a bullying report for staff members and a bullying report for students. Instructions are included on the forms.
