Reporting Incidents of Bullying

CCPS is committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and respectful educational environment where the worth and dignity of individuals are valued and their safety and rights are protected. In an effort to reinforce the processes we have in place through CCPS policy and regulation, we are reminding students and families of the procedures for reporting incidents of bullying.


We strongly believe that we all must work together – students, staff, families, and the community – to act as ‘upstanders’ rather than bystanders, and be the person who intervenes on behalf of a person being bullied. The school and district cannot act on incidents of bullying if we are unaware or not fully informed of the facts from everyone involved.


Students who believe that they have been subject to bullying, harassment, or intimidation or who have knowledge of employees or students who may be engaging in these acts should immediately report the problem to a teacher, counselor, or school administrator.


We also encourage all cases of bullying and harassment be reported by using the forms below. However, if a student or family member is unable to complete the form for any reason, help is available through the school office or the district Student Services office (410-479-3253). After the form is submitted, the school administration and Student Services division is notified so the investigation may be completed. All investigations must be conducted by school administration in a timely manner.

Promoting a healthy and safe environment for ALL students and staff.

CCPS is committed to providing a safe, respectful, nurturing educational environment where the worth and dignity of individuals are valued and their safety and rights are protected. Behaviors that compromise this environment, interfere with school operations or are otherwise contrary to the basic mission of our public schools will not be tolerated. Bullying, hazing, harassment or other discrimination affecting a student or a staff member should be reported by a victim, parent/guardian, witness, staff member or other person having knowledge.


Staff members with knowledge of such conduct are required to promptly report it to the building principal.

Non Discrimination Statement

Caroline County Public Schools prohibits discrimination in its educational programs, and in employment, on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, sexual orientation, genetic information, gender identity, or disability.

Parents Right to Know


The Federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) contains several provisions that promote a parent/school partnership through communication. One such provision gives parents the right to ask for and receive information about the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers. A parent may request the following information:


  • Any college or university degree, major or certification held by the teacher

  • Whether the teacher is certified by the State of Maryland to teach a particular grade level or subject area

  • Whether the teacher holds a conditional teaching certificate

  • The qualifications of the paraprofessionals serving the student


If you would like to request the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers or paraprofessionals, please submit a written request to the principal. The principal will provide the information to you within 30 business days of the date of your request.


Parents may also request information on the level of achievement and academic growth of their child, if applicable and available, on each of the State academic assessments.


Parents will receive timely notice if the student has been assigned, or has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who does not meet applicable State certification or licensure requirements at the grade level and subject area in which the teacher has been assigned.


Parents May Request Teacher Information


The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015 provides parents of students attending Title 1 schools the opportunity to request information about the professional qualifications of their child's teachers. Parents of elementary students may request in writing to the school principal information about their child's teacher including college/university degrees of certification held, subject area of the teacher's degree or certification, and Maryland certification status. Additionally, if your child is served by paraprofessionals, parents may request their professional qualifications.

Parents are encouraged to visit our Parent Information Resource Center (PIRC) located in the lobby outside of the front office.
