Bullying Box and the new Bull-e Box
We received a number of requests to create an online, anonymous bullying report system. Students cited that other students observing victims putting notes in the box could make students hesitant to report bullies. So, after some discussion among staff, an online, anonymous bullying report system is being piloted. It is called the Bull-e Box; it is a simple reporting system that will give our leadership team information to investigate bullying. The link is below:
