12  Principal initiates investigation. Anti-Bullying Specialist conducts the investigation.  If affirmed as HIB by the BOE (found to be HIB), enter incident in both HIB-ITP and EVVRS  If not affirmed as HIB, only count the investigation in HIB-ITP, and do not enter as an HIB incident  Incidents reported in EVVRS must match number of affirmed incidents reported to HIB-ITP* system 11 *Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying – Investigations, Trainings, and Programs

13  Incidents occurring off-school grounds are also reported (only for HIB)  HIB incidents in July and August are not reported to EVVRS but ARE locally investigated, documented, and reported to the BOE  Update EVVRS records if original report is amended, or wait to enter HIB incidents until after BOE decision is rendered.  HIB cases may qualify as other EVVRS incident types. 12

15 Jason, a high school student, was found to have a box cutter in his pocket. He claimed he needed the box cutter for his job at a local grocery store – a claim that was confirmed upon investigation.
