In accordance with Board Policy, the Public Safety Academy administration and staff members are sensitive and concerned about any kind of harassment. We can only effectively stop harassment when we are made aware of the situation as soon as possible, and/or before a situation develops. Cadets and parents are to report any situation involving harassment, or bullying to a staff member immediately.
The information will be forwarded to a school administrator so that the harassment can be immediately addressed. The practice of playing abusive or humiliating tricks on another cadet, or any group of individuals is strictly prohibited. Actions that may be classified as bullying are further activities that will not be tolerated at any level, and will be dealt with swiftly.
PSASB students may be suspended and/or expelled from the school for participating in unlawful harassment by means of verbal or physical conduct based on a student’s actual or perceived race, religion, color, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability. This includes any verbal or physical conduct that has the purpose or effect of interfering with a student’s educational performance or creating an intimidating,
hostile or offensive environment.
If your cadet is a victim of any type of bullying or harassment, there is a “bullying complaint” form on our website at psasb.us. You may fill out this form, contact the school directly, or both.
