The MAX Charter School has adopted a “Bullying Policy” in conjunction with the passage of House Bill 1458. Please take time to discuss this policy with your child and the need to report any incident and the consequences for a student who violates the policy.
School faculty and staff who witness or receive reports of bullying are to notify the principal immediately. The policy requires that administrators investigate all reports, and requires intervention and prevention strategies at all levels. School and home must firmly believe that teasing and bullying of any kind is unacceptable and that consequences of these actions are both immediate and serious. Administrators have been directed to take a stronger position with regard to disciplinary action when pre-bullying and bullying activities have been identified.
The MAX Charter School strives to maintain a safe school learning environment. Home communication, cooperation and support are essential for all student success. We are fortunate to have strong parental support, well-trained professional staff and wonderful students to work with. Please review the adopted MAX Charter School Bullying Policy in compliance with Louisiana Law: Bullying/Harassment Policy (RS17:416.13), Cyber Bullying Policy (HB1259), and Hazing Policy (RS17:183).
