Bullying and Harrassment Information

On June 10, 2008, the Legislature passed House Bill 669, the Jeffrey Johnston Stand Up for All Students Act. This act requires that all Florida districts adopt a policy prohibiting bullying and harassment of students and staff on school grounds, at school-sponsored events, and through computer networks.

Miami Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) is committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students. To this end, M-DCPS is dedicated to eradicating bullying and harassment in its schools by providing awareness, prevention and education in promoting a school atmosphere in which bullying, harassment, and intimidation will not be tolerated by students, school board employees, visitors, or volunteers.

Bullying is not ok.

- JOHN WATSON -

Students have the power to make their schools safer. If they become aware of violent or dangerous behavior at their school, they are encouraged to share that information with a trusted adult or they may also report this information to the Bullying/Harassment Anonymous Tip Hotline at 305-995-CARE (2273).
