School Bullying Report Forms

  • Yorkville School District takes bullying very seriously, which can be demonstrated through the established policies and procedures we follow closely.  
     
    Bullying has been defined, as “ongoing physical or emotional victimization of a person by another person or group of people” (SPRC, 2011). In addition to this definition, the State of Illinois passed the statute in 2014 specifically regarding a set definition adopted by the Illinois School Code. The state legislature amended the bullying statute in the Illinois School Code to be more comprehensive. School districts are required to have specific policies, procedures, and practices in place regarding reporting and investigating bullying complaints. District 115 has updated our policies, procedures, and practices to reflect the amended statutory requirements.
     
    District 115 defines bullying as the following:   
    • Placing the student or students in reasonable fear of harm to the student’s or students’ person or property; 
    • Causing a substantial detrimental effect on the student’s or students’ physical or mental health; 
    • Substantially interfering with the student’s or students’ academic performance; or 
    • Substantially interfering with the student’s or students’ ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or privileges provided by a school. 
    • Occurring over a period of time

    Please be assured that District 115 is committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students and staff, will not tolerate any type of bullying behavior. In the event an alleged bullying incident occurs, we ask that our students, staff, and/or parents/guardians report this information immediately so we may conduct an investigation and respond appropriately. This information can be reported in person, online, or by phone. Additionally, paper copies of the reports are available in each school’s main office.
     
    Reports can be made anonymously by using the District’s 115 Bullying Reporting Form available on the District’s website (www.y115.org) and hard copies are available in each school’s office. You also may contact an administrator at each school or the District office. Building administration will access the information from the bullying report by the next school day. During scheduled school breaks, please contact the District 115 Administration Center at 630-553- 4382.

     
    In addition to the online report form, District 115 encourages parents and students to contact anyone below for concerns regarding bullying.
