Now Available: Bullying Reporting Form for Central Families
Central School is committed to providing all students and staff with a safe environment in which all members of the
school community are treated in a caring manner as defined by our PBIS expectations: Caring, Commitment &
Safety. Bullying/harassment does not allow students or staff to feel safe. Bullying, as defined by Iowa law, must fit
three criteria: aggressive, repeated, and have an imbalance of power. It may be electronic, written, verbal, or physical.
If you experience or witness bullying/harassment, we strongly encourage you to report it using Central's new
bullying reporting form.
