MCS Bullying Prevention / Reporting

Marion Community Schools WILL NOT TOLERATE BULLYING in any form. Bullying behavior toward a student, whether by other students, staff, or third parties, is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated. (Board Policy 5517.1)


MCS policies on bullying meet requirements from the state and include:


  • Reporting requirements for staff regarding alleged incidents of bullying, including required forms
    (there are separate forms for use by staff, parents, targeted students, and student witnesses - see below).
  • Timelines for reporting and investigating such allegations.
  • Staff training.
  • Student training.

Together WE CAN make a difference!


If you suspect bullying, the best way to prompt an investigation is to report such incidents in writing to your school office. Please use the forms linked below. Once a form is submitted to an MCS administrator, the required investigation will begin.

Though such formal reports are the most effective, MCS understands tipsters sometimes need anonymity. That’s why we offer the MCS Hotline (click here for information).
Inappropriate ways of addressing alleged bullying that will NOT start a required investigation by MCS staff include: posts on social media sites, gossip, complaints to anyone besides staff.
