High Schools
All of our High schools have a zero tolerance policy for bullying. They encourage students to report to a staff member of any actual or suspected bullying so it will be addressed in a timely manner. Each high school has a commitment to keep bullying from being a disruption to the learning environment. The staff supervises the students and campus regularly to prohibit bullying behaviors. As needed, they will refer to the Mediation Center in Brevard to help resolve conflict through a mutual agreement. These services are available at the Meditation Center and onsite at all the schools, by referral. One of our goals is to empower all students to respect each person as a unique individual which addresses an intolerance for bullying.

Middle Schools
Both Rosman and Brevard Middle Schools have Zero Tolerance for bullying and address bullying through a school-wide focus on bullying prevention activities and year-long character development lessons within the classroom. A bullying prevention unit is part of the health curriculum. Counselors hold groups and also are involved in bully prevention month. SAVE Club also promotes and is involved in the month-long focus. Each school hosts Red Ribbon Week to encourage students to stay away from drugs and any form of bullying. Both schools participate in the training and application of Say Something.

Elementary Schools
All our elementary schools have a zero tolerance for bullying. School Principals and the SRO visit classrooms throughout the school year and talk to all students about bullying. They inform students about what to do when they are being bullied and to remind students that there is no tolerance for bullying. Guidance counselors teach monthly lessons about character that include activities and classroom instruction. The SRO's reinforces non-bullying character through the D.A.R.E program.
