JHF-RA, Bullying, Harassment, or Intimidation
About this Regulation
Last revised: February 28, 2017
Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) believes that academic achievement and social growth occur when students and staff feel safe. Bullying, harassment, or intimidation interferes with the safe operation of schools. Students who are bullied, students who bully, and students who are bystanders are at risk of experiencing a range of negative health, safety, and educational outcomes. This regulation provides procedures that address the prohibition of bullying in schools by implementing prevention, early intervention, remedial activities, and specific consequences as needed, and guard against reprisal or retaliation against individuals who report acts of bullying.
