The Quincy Public Schools is in the process of updating the Bullying Prevention and Intervention plan for district wide implementation. Part of this process is to provide all stakeholders the opportunity to review and comment on the plan.

The regulations state:

Each school district, charter school, non-public school, Department-approved private special education school, and collaborative school must create a Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plan (Plan) that prohibits bullying, cyberbullying, and retaliation. The Plan is to include information on reporting, notice to parents and guardians, notice to law enforcement as necessary, and counseling strategies and procedures for creating safety plans for victims. Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plans must be updated every other year. (See M.G.L. c. 71, § 37O, added by Chapter 92 of the Acts of 2010.)

When developing the Plan, school districts, charter schools, Department-approved private special education schools, and collaborative schools must give notice and provide for a public comment period.

The Quincy Public Schools welcomes any feedback from any stakeholder to ensure that we have the best possible Intervention and Prevention Plan in order to provide a safe and affirming school climate through the district. Feedback will be accepted through January 13, 2023 and may be sent to [email protected].
