If you are concerned that your child is the target of bullying behavior, please report your concerns to your child’s school. Depending on the age/grade level of your child and the circumstances of the incident(s) you are reporting, you may decide to report to a teacher or counselor, an assistant principal, the RFA Liaison, Parent Coordinator, or the principal.
You can find contact information for your school on your school’s web portal. You can find your school’s web portal using “School Search" (in the center of our home page). When you open the school’s web portal, the office phone number will be listed in the right margin under “School Details.”
If, after reporting to your child’s school, you require additional assistance, please contact your school’s District Family Advocate (for elementary and middle schools) or Borough Family Advocate (for high schools), or email RespectForAll@schools.nyc.gov.
All reports of harassment, discrimination and/or bullying behavior will be investigated. Please see Chancellor’s Regulation A-832 for Student-to-Student Discrimination, Harassment, Intimidation and/or Bullying, and the Policy Resources section of this website for more information about related policies.
Encourage your child to use these resources for students.
Here is information on providing guidance regarding children who bully.
