The U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights (OCR) now considers some incidents of bullying and harassment to be enforceable civil rights violations and will pay close attention to cases of discrimination based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or perceived disability.
Bullying is aggressive behavior that involves unwanted, negative actions. It involves a pattern of behavior(s) repeated over time and an imbalance of power and/or strength.
Schools are responsible for addressing harassment incidents which they have or should have known about and must take appropriate and immediate steps to investigate. PCG Education's bullying reporting and management tools can help your organization to appropriately manage bullying cases and allows staff members to report incidents and related factors, including levels of involvement, with realtime data entry.
PCG Education offers a range of tools to help schools and districts document bullying incidents. Our solution includes differing levels of access to allow all members of the academic community, from students to administrators, to appropriately contribute information to the system in order to promote desired outcomes.
Through an anonymous Web link, a student or parent can safely report a bullying incident from any computer at any time. Related factors such as participants and levels of involvement can be reported with real-time data entry.
Via a secure login, authorized school staff members can report and investigate an incident. Staff members assigned to anonymously reported bullying incidents can investigate the reports and mark them as authentic or inauthentic.
Incidents marked as authentic can be managed by assigning specific student roles (victim, bully, witness) for each incident and then assigning various actions that are customizable to the district.
Actions might include Call Home, Interview, and Assigned Bullying Intervention Program. Staff can also document Restraints and Isolations, monitor the need for Manifestation Determinations, and print a student-specific incident document.
Reduce the time required to document bullying incidents.
The system allows key personnel to make data driven decisions using up-to-the-minute information with real-time reports.
Alerts prompt staff members when additional action is required based on federal, district, and state policy.
