The Chappaqua Board of Education is committed to providing a safe and positive school environment for all students. Students are encouraged, at all times, to treat others as they would wish to be treated. In order to allow all students to enjoy the highest standard of education in our schools, the Board strictly forbids any forms of harassment, bullying, hazing, or discrimination on school grounds, school buses, and at all school sponsored activities.

Any student who hears about, sees, or believes he/she is the victim of an act of bullying, harassment, or discrimination should report it directly to an adult (administrator, counselor, teacher, social worker, school psychologist) If you cannot reach an adult directly you may use this form to anonymously report any suspicious incident, activity, bullying, cyberbullying, or other student-related or staff-related issues. Students who report such events or participate in an investigation have the right to be safe from any kind of retaliation.

Please note: this reporting system is only to be used for health and safety concerns.

Cyber-bullying involves the use of information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group, that is intended to harm others. "Cyberbullying" is when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies or mobile phones. It has to have a minor on both sides, or at least have been instigated by a minor against another minor. Once adults become involved, it is plain and simple cyber-harassment or cyberstalking. Adult cyber-harassment or cyberstalking is never called cyberbullying.


Harassment covers a wide range of behaviors enacted by one person to another person that are intended to disturb or upset, and usually repetitive in nature. Harassment can come in many different forms including unwanted text messages. Text messaging harassment is when someone continuously sends text messages to a person when they either aren't supposed to or have been asked to stop doing it.


Bullying occurs when a person is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other persons, and he or she has difficulty defending himself or herself. Bullying is aggressive behavior that involves unwanted, negative actions. Bullying involves a pattern of behavior repeated over time. Bullying involves an imbalance of power or strength.


Most people have felt sad or depressed at times. Feeling depressed can be a normal reaction to loss of a friend, loss of a relative, poor performance in school, and loss of a sporting game, students life's struggles, or an injured self-esteem. But when feelings of intense sadness, feeling helpless, hopeless, and worthless last for many weeks your depression may need to be treated as a medical condition and you may need to seek counseling and talk about how you are feeling to a counselor or physiologist.
