Report Safety/Human Rights Incident form

The Limestone District School Board is committed to an equitable and inclusive school climate that ensures all students, staff and members of the broader school community feel safe, comfortable, and accepted.

Students, families and staff are encouraged to report incidents of school safety or those that infringe on human rights such as bullying or discrimination as soon as they happen. Students, families or staff should contact their teacher and/or school administration or supervisor to provide information about the situation.

Reportable incidents include:

  • Discrimination: Discrimination is an action or decision that treats someone unfairly by either imposing a burden on them, or denying them a privilege, benefit or opportunity enjoyed by others, because of their race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, family status, genetic characteristics or disability.
  • Bullying/Cyberbullying: Bullying is aggressive behaviour that is typically repeated over time. It is meant to cause harm, fear or distress or create a negative environment at school for another person. Bullying or cyberbullying occurs in a situation where there is a real or perceived power imbalance.
  • School safety: School safety issues are those which might result in a violent incident or environmental concern.

If someone does not feel comfortable reporting an incident in person, they may use the form below to report incidents.

Information provided will be forwarded to the appropriate school administration or supervisor for action. Please provide as much detail as possible including dates and locations of incidents.

Incidents may also be reported anonymously. It is important to note that feedback and follow up cannot be provided to those reporting an incident if no contact information is provided.

In most circumstances you can expect contact within 48 hours, excluding weekends or holidays, provided you have provided contact information.

Reported incidents of school safety or those that infringe on human rights such as bullying, or discrimination are tracked and monitored to ensure accountability and transparency. Individuals will not be identified where it would violate privacy or personal safety. Information is collected under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA), and the Education Act.
