Hello TASD Families, in an effort to ensure that all students, staff and families have the ability to report things anonymously to the school leadership, we've added and "Incident Report Form" to the Website.
This form is for those individuals who wish to remain anonymous or for students who want to report something, but don't exactly know what they should do. Parents should continue to communicate with the school directly via email or phone.
Please note that this action is not in response to anything, just a proactive way to ensure that lines of communication are open and that there exists a way for the students to report incidents and maintain anonymity.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us @ 870-772-3371 ext. 1003.
CDC defines bullying as any unwanted aggressive behavior(s) by another youth or group of youths, who are not siblings or current dating partners, that involves an observed or perceived power imbalance, and is repeated multiple times or is highly likely to be repeated. Bullying may inflict harm or distress on the targeted youth including physical, psychological, social, or educational harm. Common types of bullying include:
Physical such as hitting, kicking, and tripping
Verbal including name-calling and teasing
Relational/social such as spreading rumors and leaving out of the group
Damage to property of the victim
Bullying can also occur through technology, which is called electronic bullying or cyberbullying. A young person can be a perpetrator, a victim, or both (also known as “bully/victim”).
