See Something Say Something

See something say somethingReport Threats, Bullying, Discrimination, Harassment, and Intimidation

The single most effective preventative tool regarding school safety and security is the See Something, Say Something protocol, which every school in Greenville County utilizes. It is critically important that if students see or hear something that is concerning, they say something to a trusted adult or report it below.

The District is committed to fostering an environment that both promotes learning and prevents disruptions in the educational process. Accordingly, the District prohibits all forms of bullying, discrimination, harassment or intimidation. As provided in Board Policy and Administrative Rule JCDAG, students and parents may file a report of bullying, discrimination, harassment or intimidation by other students, employees of the District, or third parties involved in the school setting.

All reports should be filed with the principal or his or her designee. Reports may also be filed by a student’s parent. If the allegation is against the school’s administration, the student or parent should file a report directly with the District’s Parent Resource Representative. (See Policy JA for contact information). Anonymous reports may be made, but those reports must provide the District with adequate information in order to begin an investigation.
