Student Services

Policy

Bullying, cyberbullying, harassment and intimidation, hazing, and bias behavior create a hostile educational environment for learning and cannot be tolerated. The Board of Education of Queen Anne’s County is committed to providing all students with an orderly school environment that is free from bullying, cyberbullying, harassment and intimidation, hazing, and bias behavior. All complaints of bullying, cyberbullying, harassment and intimidation, hazing, and bias behavior shall be investigated in accordance with the procedures set forth in this policy. The school system shall discipline or take other action with regard to members of the school community who engage in unlawful bullying, cyberbullying, harassment and intimidation, hazing, and bias behavior in accordance with this regulation and the QACPS Student Discipline Policy. In some cases, acts of bullying, cyberbullying, harassment and intimidation, hazing, and bias behavior may be deemed criminal under state and/or federal law.

Reporting Form

QACPS offers an online reporting form to report incidents of bullying, harassment, intimidation, hazing, and bias behavior.

TEXT 2 STOP IT

Text  “QACPS” to 71441 to report bullying, drugs, weapons, or other harmful behavior to your school. 

It’s Anonymous!

Students anonymously send text messages to stop bullying, report drugs, violence, and any other violation that needs to be reported. Students are encouraged to text a keyword and the message goes to an operator who then interviews them via text to get information. The operator collects information and a transcript of the conversation is emailed to designated staff members in the schools to address the concern. The calls from students are anonymous.

TEXT 2 STOP IT staff members are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including in summer.
