It is the policy of the Garrett County Board of Education to prohibit bullying, harassment, or intimidation of any person on school property or at school sponsored functions, or by the use of electronic technology at a public school.  Further, this policy prohibits reprisal or retaliation against individuals who report acts of bullying, harassment, or intimidation, including those who are victims, witnesses, bystanders, or others with reliable information concerning such incidents.  Reports of bullying, harassment, or intimidation may be made through the use of the MSDE Reporting Form in accordance with the Safe Schools Reporting Act of 2005.  The report is made to the school principal for investigation and subsequent action.  Anyone needing to report this type of incident may pick up the reporting form in the Main Office or from Mrs. Dawna Ashby.
