J.21 Bullying Prevention - March 2007 Revision

Note: This policy was reviewed and revised in November 2010. We provide this revision for historic purposes only. Please refer to the current policy.

The Board of Education of the Albuquerque Public Schools is committed to providing a safe, respectful and fear-free environment for all members of the school community including students, staff, parents, community partners, and visitors.

The Board believes that preventing bullying is important to having a safe, respectful, and fear-free climate which should help students learn, achieve high academic standards, and establish a positive educational environment. All participants in the Albuquerque Public School District's educational community should be aware of the Board's expectation of a safe, respectful and fear-free school and work environment, and should model this in their own behaviors.

The Board directs the Superintendent to establish procedures to implement this policy.
