Harassment, Intimidation or Bullying
The Caldwell-West Caldwell Schools expect pupils to treat each other with civility and respect, and will not tolerate acts of harassment, intimidation or bullying. As with other disruptive or violent behaviors, this conduct interferes with a pupil’s ability to learn, as well as with his/her social/emotional development and a school’s ability to educate its pupils in a safe environment. The Caldwell-West Caldwell Board of Education prohibits acts of harassment, intimidation or bullying against any pupil.
The Caldwell-West Caldwell Board of Education has approved a revised policy which places the district in compliance with New Jersey’s legislation regarding harassment, intimidation and bullying prevention. All parents have been provided with the full text of the district’s revised policy on the district website as of September, 2015.
