Bullying Policy

CJHS-RC Anti-bullying Programs
CJHS-RC has in place programs to promote character and in turn create an atmosphere on our campus to prevent bullying before it starts. Weekly implementation of Character Strong lessons emphasize the importance of patience, kindness, honesty, respect, selflessness, forgiveness, commitment, and humility.
CJHS-RC has also established an anti-bullying team of students and faculty, Cards Who Care, to help monitor and prevent bullying on our campus. The team will consist of girls and boys from each grade level (6-8). An assembly will be held to explain the group and ask for volunteers. The team for each grade will then be selected by a committee consisting of the principal, assistant principal, counselor, team leader for the respective grade, and a teacher from the respective grade. The team of students will monitor and report instances of bullying to the principal or assistant principal, and appropriate action will be taken. The team will also serve as a go between for student students to report incidents of bullying for students who would otherwise be reluctant to do so.
Additionally, a student may anonymously report an alleged incident of bullying through the STOPit reporting site at https://appweb.stopitsolutions.com/login using access code cardscjhs

The administration will investigate any allegations of bullying and related misconduct. The district will also provide notice to the parent of the alleged victim and the parent of the student alleged to have engaged in bullying. If an investigation determines that bullying occurred, the administration will take appropriate disciplinary action and may, in certain circumstances, notify law enforcement. Disciplinary or other action may be taken even if the conduct did not rise to the level of bullying.
Available counseling options will be provided to the affected individuals, including any student who witnessed the bullying.
Any retaliation against a student who reports an incident of bullying is prohibited.
Students my also use the CISD bullying hotline by calling toll-free (866) 346-2769.
