Under new legislation, last week was the deadline for school districts to submit anti-bullying plans to the state. The Patrick administration said 99% of districts and charter schools submitted plans by the deadline — including Northborough-Southborough.
Superintendent Charles Gobron told the K-8 School Committee last month that the district’s anti-bullying policy defines what bullying is, what steps need to be taken to investigate charges of bullying, and professional development, among other topics. He called the policy a “living document” that can be adapted and changed at any time.
The policy also covers cyber-bullying.
You can take a look at the anti-bullying plan for Southborough schools on the district website.
