Bullying and Other Forms of Aggressive Behavior
The Board of Education is committed to providing a safe, positive, productive, and nurturing educational environment for all of its students. The Board encourages the promotion of positive interpersonal relations between members of the school community.
Harassment, intimidation, or bullying toward a student, whether by other students, staff, or third parties is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated. This prohibition includes aggressive behavior, physical, verbal, and psychological abuse, and violence within a dating relationship. The Board of Education will not tolerate any gestures, comments, threats, or actions which cause or threaten to cause bodily harm or personal degradation. This policy applies to all activities in the District, including activities on school property or while enroute to or from school, and those occurring off school property if the student or employee is at any school-sponsored, school-approved or school-related activity or function, such as field trips or athletic events where students are under the school's control, in a school vehicle, or where an employee is engaged in school business.

Annual Asbestos Notification
In compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), we are required annually to inform all parents, teachers and staff as to the availability of our asbestos management plan as well as any activities which have taken place in the previous year.
We have recently completed the required 3-year asbestos reinspection of our facilities as well as several removal projects as part of our building projects. All asbestos removal was conducted by highly qualified and State licensed asbestos contractor in accordance with current regulations issued by the EPA, ODH, and OSHA. To alleviate any fears concerning potential asbestos exposure, we retained the services of a licensed air-monitoring firm to be on-site for the duration of the asbestos removal projects. Air monitoring was conducted inside and outside the asbestos removal areas to ensure that air levels are in compliance with EPA regulations. In addition, air samples were taken following completion of the removal to ensure that air levels are below the regulatory clearance level.
Our asbestos management plan is on file in the Maintenance Office and in the office of each school building. All interested partied are welcome to view the management plan during normal school hours.
