Here at Taft School, we desire to prevent bullying by establishing a positive, collaborative school climate, and clear rules for student conduct. Too often students are put in a position where they believe taking action and saying something might be more harmful than keeping quiet. In fact, every student has the responsibility to help stop any type of bullying by 1) stopping rumors whenever possible, 2) telling an adult/supervisor when you see someone being bullied, or 3) telling an adult or campus supervisor when you hear of plans to bully someone or start a fight. We all have a responsibility to uphold the rights of the students here at the school.
All students at Taft School have a right to the following:
- A safe, secure, and peaceful school environment where you are free from bullying, threats, and harassment,
either physical or emotional.
- To submit a verbal or written complaint of conduct you feel might be considered bullying to a teacher or the principal.
- To make the above complaints anonymous and without fear that your name will be divulged (it will be kept in confidence).
