“BULLYING IS NOT ALLOWED AT FULLERTON SCHOOL DISTRICT”

No individual or group shall, through physical, written, verbal, or other means, harass, sexually harass, threaten, intimidate, cyberbully, cause bodily injury to, or commit hate violence against any other student or school personnel in a systematic or reoccuring manner.
Cyberbullying includes the transmission of harassing communications, direct threats, or other harmful texts, sounds, or images on the Internet, social media, or other technologies using a telephone, computer, or any wireless communication device on school premises, or off campus in a manner that causes or is likely to cause a substantial disruption of a school activity or school attendance. Cyberbullying also includes breaking into another person's electronic account and assuming that person's identity in order to damage or victimize that person's reputation.
Students are encouraged to notify school staff when they are being bullied or suspect that another student is being victimized.
School staff who witness bullying shall immediately intervene to stop the incident when it is safe to do so. (Education Code 234.1)

California Healthy Kids Survey
During the week of December 5 - 9, 2011, the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) will be administered to all Fullerton School District students in 5th and 7th grades. Students in 7th grade will only be administered Module A of the survey. The CHKS is sponsored by the California Department of Education and meets a requirement of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) for Title IV Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities.
The CHKS allows districts to identify the health and safety needs of students, establish program goals, and monitor progress in achieving goals. It is designed to be part of a comprehensive decision making process to help guide the development of more effective health, prevention and youth development programs, such as Safe Schools and our mandated wellness policy.
Parent consent and withdrawal forms and additional information will be sent home soon with all 5th and 7th grade students. This survey is required by the State, however, parents may opt out for their child by submitting the proper form. Parents of 5th grade students must return the consent form if they choose to have their students participate in the survey. Parents of 7th grade students must return the withdrawal form if they choose not to have their student participate in the survey.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call Craig Bertsch, Office of Child Welfare and Attendance, at 714 447-7528.
