  •     It is the policy of Queen Anne’s County Public Schools to prohibit bullying, harassment, and intimidation of any person on school property, at school-sponsored functions or by the use of electronic technology at a public school.  It is also the policy of Queen Anne’s County Public Schools to prohibit reprisal or retaliation against individuals who report acts of bullying, harassment and intimidation or who are victims, witnesses, bystanders, or others with reliable information about an act of bullying, harassment, and intimidation. 
     
      The Queen Anne's County School system has recently launched an online reporting system for reporting incidents of bullying, harassment and intimidation by parents, students, teachers, and other school staff. This reporting system is an online version of the official bullying, harassment, and intimidation form that is available at all schools. The online version does not replace the form that is available, it is simply another way to report an incident to the Queen Anne's County School system. Governor Martin O'Malley has asked that all school systems have this online reporting form up and running by the end of this school year. If you would like any more information or have any questions about the online reporting system, please contact Brad Engel, Supervisor of Student Services for the Queen Anne's Public Schools at 410-758-8216 or you can email him at Brad.Engel@qacps.org
