Bullying Prevention Program

The CJUSD recognizes the harmful effects of bullying on student well-being, student learning, and school attendance and desires to provide a safe school environment that protects students from physical and emotional harm. No individual or group shall, through physical, written, verbal, visual, or other means, harass, sexually harass, threaten, intimidate, cyberbully, cause bodily injury to, or commit hate violence against any student or school personnel, or retaliate against them for filing a complaint or participating in the complaint resolution process. The CJUSD has developed policies, procedures, and strategies for bullying prevention and intervention to help ensure a positive, collaborative school climate where all students feel welcome and safe.

Cyberbullying includes the electronic creation or transmission of harassing communications, direct threats, or other harmful texts, sounds, or images. Cyberbullying also includes breaking into another person’s electronic account or assuming that person’s online identity in order to damage that person’s reputation.


Students who believe that they have been bullied or have witnessed bullying are strongly encouraged to bring up their concerns by either filing a report using our online Incident Reporting System (link below), by calling the school or district, or by reporting in person to any staff member.
When you make a report using the online Incident Reporting System, you can remain anonymous, or you have the option to identify yourself and communicate with the administration.
Incident reports are received by administration when they are filed and are reviewed as soon as possible. All reports are taken seriously and are acted upon in a timely manner. As each incident is different, each will warrant a different reaction and timeline for action.
